A Chinese teacher who managed to slap her infant pupils over 120 times in only half an hour has attracted widespread condemnation in China and beyond.
The footage came from a kindergarten in China’s Shanxi province, and shows a female teacher slapping her young charges in excess of 120 times over a 30 minute period, apparently dissatisfied with their mental arithmetic.
Excerpts have received wide coverage in Chinese media, to say nothing of online:
The abuse came to light when a father noticed how badly his little daughter’s face was swollen, and demanded an explanation from the school – which for some reason had installed CCTV in the classroom. The woman responsible has reportedly since been sacked.
