Seventeen parents denounced a teacher at Trung Van Primary School in Hanoi for hitting students in the heads with aluminum rule, kicking students’ stomachs and tearing students’ textbooks.

In March 2019, a teacher at An Thang Primary School in Hai Phong City beat P, a second grader, with a ruler, causing bruises on her back, because P could not do the exercises.

Nguyen Dinh Cong, P’s father, affirmed that this was not the first time his daughter had been hit by the teacher.

Hoang Ngoc Vinh, former director of the Department of Professional Education, expressing his concern over the increase in number of school abuse cases.

He said people with violent nature cannot serve in the education sector and education establishments must not recruit such people.

“You cannot say the teachers conducted such behavior because they were put under strict control,” he said.

“The teacher's mission is to educate people. If teachers abuse children, children will also be violent to others,” he said. “If you cannot restrain hot temper, you’d be better not to become a teacher.

Nguyen Le Ninh, a member of the Vietnam Fatherland Front’s Committee, commented that Vietnamese teachers are under pressure as the wages they receive from teaching are not high enough to cover their needs.

He said in order to have a healthy education, it is necessary to pay teachers well.

“When the remuneration regime is unreasonable and teachers cannot live on their salaries, they will not be dedicated,” he concluded.
