Arriving late to the classroom is a serious thing in China. However, a teacher at Hexi University in Zhangye city, western Gansu Province, went too far with a punishment.
A footage has surfaced showing at least 13 students standing outside the classroom, as the teacher orders them to slap each other across the face. He even slaps some of the students himself because they didn’t do it strongly enough.
After the video went viral, Gansu Provincial Department of Education announced that the teacher, surnamed Lv, was fired. He also had to apologize publicly for his improper behavior.
