A school principal in Vietnam has been suspended from work in the wake of a group of students attacking their teacher in the classroom late last month.

Tran Duy Sang, principal of Van Phu Middle School in Son Duong District, northern Tuyen Quang Province, has been suspended pending an investigation into a shocking incident where a group of seventh graders locked a teacher in a classroom, verbally abused her, and threw a sandal at her head, leading to her unconsciousness.

The chairman of the Son Duong People’s Committee informed Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Thursday that a 15-day suspension has been imposed on Sang.

This move comes as the district investigates the alleged 'immoral behavior toward their teacher' exhibited by the students involved in the incident.

Earlier, a video went viral on social media showing a female music teacher, identified as Phan Thi H., 38, holding her sandal and chasing her students in the classroom.

However, in another viral video, the teacher is seen being subjected to bullying by a group of students following her music class.

The incident happened at 10:30 am on November 29.

As the teacher was leaving the classroom, the students in the video locked the door to prevent her from going out. They then pushed her into a corner of the classroom, cheering and uttering offensive remarks.

One of these aggressive students threw a sandal at the teacher's head, causing her to feel dizzy and leaving her unconscious on the spot.

Upon receiving notification of the incident, the Son Duong District administration promptly instructed relevant units to investigate and address this shocking incident.

On November 30, the district’s division of education and training, police department, and other competent units collaborated with the school board to seek clarification regarding the responsibility of the teacher and students.

They also discussed recommendations on how to proceed in light of the incident.

The school mandated reports from the teacher and students involved in early December.
