Pham Song Toan, the student, burst into crying talking about the teacher



She wrote lessons on the blackboard and students sat in the classroom and wrote in their notebooks.

At a dialogue between students and leaders of the HCMC Education & Training Department days ago, a student burst into crying talking about the math teacher.

Phong Song Toan, the student, said the teacher did not say anything or communicate with students in class in the last four months. As a result, students had to teach themselves.

The school’s management did not know about the problem until the student told them. 

Parents and educators, especially after they discovered that the teacher was disciplined in 2012, were angry about the news. 

She wrote lessons on the blackboard and students sat in the classroom and wrote in their notebooks.

Students at Nguyen Huu Tho High School, where Chau worked before moving to Long Thoi School, said that during lessons one day there was a big noise. Chau asked: “Who is barking in the class?”  She then asked the class monitor ‘who often barks in the class’? After that, she expelled some students from class.

Chau explained to the school’s management board why she did not talk during teaching. However, the explanation was not accepted. 

Pham Huu Cuong, director of the Thay Cuong Tutoring Center, said that Chau’s silence and coldness showed a lack of love for students and irresponsibility. 

“This not only hurts students but also causes psychological trauma. Stress, fear and inhibitions will make students afraid of going to school,” Cuong said.

He said that the school’s leaders had neglected teaching staff, officers and students. 

“If I were the director of the education department, I would dismiss the headmaster and the management board from their duties,” he said. “Another person who is very blameworthy is the head teacher.”

Dinh Thien Ly, a teacher at Dinh Thien Ly Secondary & High School, said teachers not only need to have deep professional knowledge and good teaching skills, but also must behave correctly.

“School is not only the place where teachers give lessons about science, but also the place for students to connect and establish relations,” she said, adding that if student-teacher relations are not good, this affects the formation of students’ personality and intellect.

More Vietnamese teachers have been found as speaking  rudely to students recently. Teachers’ harsh language and rude behavior toward students are believed to be the seeds of school violence.
