In a video spreading like wildfire around the ‘nets, two students who reportedly caused their class’s school bus to leave late are forced by their teacher to stand for five minutes and repeatedly hit each other across the face.
The video was taken in Liwan District, Guangzhou, Guangdong, and was uploaded today to Sina.com.
At the end of the video, the teacher, apparently yet unsatisfied with their punishment, delivers a final few smacks before having the students return to their seats.
This is the second instance in a week of strange corporal punishment being doled out in China’s public school system. Last Friday we reported on a teacher making children run laps while pantsless in Zhejiang for being noisy in class.
