446. Jeongeup boarding school

A well-respected teacher at the Jeongeup boarding school in South Korea was charged with child abuse after he bit a hamster to death in front of the students and started to eat it. Hard pressure from parents forced the authorities to intervene against the teacher in a country where parents often buy canes for the teacher to use on their children. It seems that there were a limit for the parents in this country who seems to accept use of violence against their children for them to do good in school. They call it the “Stick of love” ceremony.

It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
