Yet another case of horrifying child abuse in China’s schools. A maths teacher in Kedong, Heilongjiang province, was caught on video attacking two of his students.
In the video, Liu Yuchun is seen pulling a boy to his feet by his ear and punching him in his chest. He then grabs a girl by her fair and drags her to the ground, hitting her so hard she reportedly passed out.
“I made a mistake, I admit it. I told my students this afterwards,” Liu told reporters.
Corporal punishment in schools is illegal in China, two Zhejiang teachers were arrested after photos of them abusing their young charges were posted online.
In May, China’s supreme court ordered that harsher punishments be handed out to those convicted of abusing children.
