Beast of a teacher, unbelievably orders students to kneel and write self-criticisms

I saw this during class. These students, possibly for playing poker, were caught by the teacher.  [The teacher] unbelievably orders them to kneel to write [self-criticisms], while the teacher stood beside them and smoked.  This teacher was real TM laid-back/nonchalant…

When I was in the fifth grade of elementary school, the teacher pulled me by the ear, and I think at the time my ear even bled.
But to this day, I still thank her —— Responsible teachers deserve thanks.

The teacher wasn’t wrong. Kids these days, you can’t hut them, you can’t yell at them, extremely difficult to teach/discipline!
Think back to when we were small, the teachers would often use wooden rulers to hit our palms, and when our parents found out after we got home, they’d discipline us one more time. It if weren’t because you didn’t listen, why would the teacher punish you?!

This kind of so-called “integrity/character education” is itself lacking humanity, or to put it another way, this is inherited from the patriarchal system! This kind of logic is simply: “Might is right!”

小刀儿:

In the first grade I copied someone’s homework and insisted on saying I did it myself, so the teacher gave me a thrashing, my entire ass was beaten purple. Now thinking back to it I hold no hate, and I’m very grateful. She said that liking to play and not completing homework is forgivable, but lying cannot be forgiven, teaching me to develop good character and conduct myself with integrity. After I began working, if an error appeared I would bravely examine myself. I definitely wouldn’t lie to escape the responsibility. It is also because of this that I’ve achieved some success in my career.

Look at kids today, cutting class, truant, not doing homework, casually lying about being sick or having some emergency at home, just skirting by. Even if the teacher knows, the teacher wont say anything. The students aren’t acting like students, the teachers aren’t acting like teachers.

What we advocate is personal development, not distorting personal development.  Letting things slide without control and not drawing a line somewhere will only mean that the education system in the future will inevitably be even worse than it is now.

Heh, this kind [of punishment] is nothing.
From elementary to high school, every one of my classmates has been hit by teachers before.
Do bad on an exam, get hit; homework isn’t complete, get hit; talk during class, also get hit; don’t go to sleep on time, also get hit.
But after all these years my classmates and I have never because of this hated our teachers.
I can only say the teacher hit us only to make us better/for our own good.
Perhaps these days we excessively stress respecting students.
Perhaps today’s students understand things early.
But that [today’s students’] self-restraint is lacking is indeed a fact.
I understand the teacher, though I don’t support [his methods].

首席评论员:

Really a good teacher, I support. Today’s students definitely deserve getting hit and scolded.

Seeing the asses of these little troublemakers pointed toward the sky is pretty amusing. This teacher really knows what to do [to deal with students], not hitting or scolding, but still giving them a deep/lasting lesson. Ding‘d.

[They] deserved punishment.
Since ancient times China has used kneeling as a form of punishment for students who don’t listen/don’t behave. Even up to the modern era, teachers use kneeling as a form of punishment for students who don’t listen/behave, so they recognize their mistakes, and it isn’t excessive either. Moreover, the teacher is doing this only for the students’ good too. I think this friend who is calling the teacher a beast isn’t anything good himself, not even understanding the concept of respecting teachers and cherishing children. Posting your whining and complaints here, I think you also lack parental guidance. The youth punished with kneeling, take some time to really reflect on yourselves!!!

There weren’t any tables and chairs there, so they could only bend-over to write on the ground…

supermyron:

Well punished! Children are used to being god at home, so the schools have a lot of gods being sent there. They say one mountain cannot hold two tigers [there can only be one boss]. One school with this many gods, how can it not be chaos?
Who created this many gods?  No doubt the god will tell you, it’s the god’s parents.

苏小弟:

Watch Korean TV serial dramas, their teachers seem to often use physical punishment.
The students even have to kneel in front of the classroom door with both arms raised too.

The reason why China is still this weak, why the Diaoyu Islands are occupied and there still isn’t anything being done, is because teachers have made us used to being humiliated since we were small. Those departments talk about punishing corrupt officials, fighting criminals, it’s all just treating symptoms and not treating the cause. Criminals, corrupt officials, why do they commit crime? Because of bad character! Why is their character bad? Because they weren’t educated/disciplined well when they were young! There is a saying that says, “Those who plant trees must cultivate the root.”  What is the root? It’s the base, the foundation. If the root is bad, then large tree will sooner or later whither. When even the lowest level of “education” isn’t handled well, what’s the point of flaunting GDP!? Sigh, when “education” is finally taken care of, that is when China will truly have become rich and powerful.

luguoqingt:

The true state of education today is that education law does not allow hitting, cursing, humiliating, or physically punishing students. Very good. The current state also includes students being provided with a monthly allowance. Very good…… When students play with their mobiles, chat, sleep in class, they can only be lightly verbally criticized, (basically no one will listen to you, unless they’re the class monitor) and if they don’t listen there’s nothing you can do. The country/state coddles students too much, because too many incidents have shown me that hitting, scolding, or physically punishing students will only create problems for oneself. You can say I am unethical…  [but] look at the current situation of education! Some students take their allowances to go to KTVs, go drinking, smoking, have relationships, it is so nice being a student these days, getting 2.5 yuan allowance to sleep each day, and no one dares to hit or scold them, much less send them home, [because] it’s compulsory education!……….

What do you think? Do students in China have it too easy these days?
