Teachers' Violence

趴在桌上睡 教师丢笔盒击伤男生头

11岁男生上课时趴在桌上睡觉,竟被老师丢铅笔盒,结果他的额头被击中,瘀青红肿,父母大怒上学校理论。
男生姓林,就读于三巴旺一所小学,今年5年级,事故发生在星期一早上10时45分左右。当时,林小弟弟正在上科学课,他的科学老师也兼任班主任。
林小弟弟说,当天早上,他感觉到很疲倦,于是将头趴在桌子上休息,他原本专注地在听课,却不自觉地闭上眼睛,睡了一会儿。
林太太表示:“他只是睡了不到5分钟,突然就听到‘啪’一声,然后感到头顶有点红肿疼痛,同学们都在笑他,他痛得哭了起来。”
林太太说,据儿子告诉她,当时班主任还厉声地骂他:“不准在我的课堂上睡觉!”
当天之后,林小弟弟并没马上把事情告诉父母。他在隔天补习时,终把事发经过全告诉补习老师,对方立即通知林太太。
林太太和丈夫对老师的处理方式很不满,昨早去学校向校长了解情况,并要求儿子换班。林太太说,校方已经与他们达成协议,他们满意校方的安排。
遭笔盒击中后 男生申诉头晕
被铅笔盒击中头,男生连日来申诉头晕、头痛,对上学产生恐惧感。
林太太透露,事发后,儿子的头顶出现瘀青和红肿,儿子连日来经常申诉头晕、头痛,影响了他的学习进度。
“现在一提到上学,他就表现得不愿意。事发时,全班看他被老师丢的铅笔盒击中,一些同学取笑他,让他对上学产生阴影,不敢接近其他同学。”
林太太说,她和丈夫基于这个理由,才会要求校方让儿子换班,让他能在一个新的环境继续学习。
“儿子说,现在一看到当时在场的同学,就会想起当天的事。如果能换班的话,他比较能专心听课。”

Teachers can reprimand the students for sleeping in class or report it to their parents but not laying their hands on the children. Didn't the principal does anything towards the teacher?

Keen to know which school also.... :idea:

Thanks verykiasu for the article.

My first thought is what is the pupil like generally? I don't think anyone would be throwing things around in the classroom unless severely provoked. Everything is student and parent say - who's to know if the kid was genuinely tired or just playing the fool and acting insolent; who's to know if the kid really is such a good boy as mentioned in the article.

If this were to happen to my kid, first thing I would do is to ask him what happened and why. He probably would kena caning from me if it's becos he's been watching too much tv and therefore didn't have enough sleep the night before.

But I would still talk to the teacher and ask him/her to refrain from such physical moves - what if pencil box land on other people?

Why must the teacher be so violence. Even if is soft pencil case it can be very dangerous. Some students have staple and mini hole puncher in it. Maybe MOE need to really look into the types of people they select for the safety of the kids.

No matter due to what reasons teachers shouldn't lay their hands on the students. He/she should have report the incident to the parents.

Some teachers do not use physical violence, but verbal ones or even ignore the child.

The pt is that students generally look up to teachers for guidance and even as character reference pts. So does that mean that those other students in the class will now think it is right to throw things at physically weaker beings whenever they are unhappy with something?

Actually to me, it is even more damaging for a teacher to verbally abuse a student, as such labelling a student as stupid. I think that will be even more insidious.

Hmm... am I the odd one out here?

During my time, I remember my Pri sch teacher used to throw the chalk duster across the classroom to hit the mischievious kid. Pretty accurate somemore... and funny to see the kid covered in chalk!

I think most parents are just too overly-protective towards kids.

The way I interpret the article... the parent seems to condone the kid sleeping in class...

So you think it is alright if your own kid is caught sleeping in class and then get hit by a duster? And everyone in the class starts laughing at him/her covered in chalk?
