Educational authorities in the north-central Vietnamese province of Nghe An have suspended a teacher from in-person teaching after a local resident accused her of beating her child with a ruler, causing several bruises on the girl's body.

The Nghe An Department of Education and Training decided that the female teacher’s suspension will last 15 days, Nguyen Trong Hoan, an official of the department said on Wednesday afternoon.

The teacher is also requested to coordinate with the family of the student in question to seek medical care for the child’s wounds.

Meanwhile, the education division of Dien Chau District, which manages Dien Yen 1 Elementary School, where the teacher is working, has to further clarify the case.

Preliminary working results have shown that the teacher used a ruler to hit Ph., a third-grade student at Dien Yen 1 Elementary School, on Tuesday as a punishment for not completing an assignment in class, according to Mai Ngoc Long, head of the education division of Dien Chau District.

T.T.P., Ph.’s 28-year-old mother, noticed several bruises on her shoulders and back when the child was taking a bath that afternoon.

As P. repeatedly asked Ph. where the bruises came from, the student told the mother that a teacher had beaten her with a ruler for failing to do classwork.

P. immediately reported the incident to the school’s management board.

The school principal and Ph.’s homeroom teacher visited her house and apologized to the family right on Tuesday evening.

“After the conclusion [of the investigation], depending on the severity of the [teacher’s] violation, we will order the school to hold a council meeting to figure out a proper disciplinary action in accordance with regulations,” said official Long.
