The dismissal is the highest level of administrative punishment, besides a reprimand and warning, Hoang Dang Khoa, chairman of the district People’s Committee, said.

On March 25, teacher Tran Thi Thu Tra used a bamboo stick, a ruler, a mobile phone and her own hand to smack the head of a grade-one student named Phan Chung Thuy at Phin Ngan Commune’s primary school. The teacher’s reason for the abuse was reportedly that Thuy was writing down the dictated text too slowly, which could have affected the overall class performance.

Fearing the consequences of her actions, Tra applied bear gall to the child’s injuries to relieve the pain, but it made the bruises on her face more conspicuous.

Following this, Tra visited the student’s home to apologise but repeated her misconduct in the classroom some days later.

Nguyen Thi Thanh Hai, head of the district’s internal affairs department, told the local news website dantri.com.vn that although the teacher had expressed regret, beating a minor twice was too aggressive an action to be ignored.

The student is now in stable condition and has returned to class after being treated at the hospital.

In another report, police of Buon Ho Town in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak are investigating the case of a 25-month-old child who sustained a serious injury at a private kindergarten in An Binh Ward.

The baby choked on food and fainted on Monday while in the care of an unlicensed kindergarten owned by Bui Thi Phuong Tam, 29, Vietnam News Agency reported.

According to Dak Lak Province’s General Hospital, the child was in critical condition. Half of his brain had suffered damage in the incident.
