A teacher at a middle school in Anhui’s capital city of Hefei didn’t exactly get the new school year started on the right foot on Friday.
Video footage has leaked online showing the teacher slapping student after student with the sound of the slaps ringing out across the classroom on the kids’ first day back from summer vacation.
According to the Beijing News, the teacher had recently been brought up from the countryside and had asked the students to write some classical poetry from memory. If they made a mistake, they would get slapped in front of the class.
The teacher has since been suspended from his post.
