The General Prosecutor has ordered the arrest of a primary school teacher who was filmed hitting and insulting his young students one by one.

In the video, which was posted on YouTube, a school teacher in the Egyptian city of Kafr Shukr in the governorate of Gharbiya sits at a desk with young children lined up to turn in their homework. As they reach him and open their notebook, the teacher glances over it and within seconds grabbed the student and hit them with a ruler on different parts of their body and the girls he would pull their hair and hit them.

During the video, the very young students cowered in terror, screaming and crying. There was the sound of laughter, allegedly from person who filmed the video. Three other people were seen in the room.

Abusive teacher video prompts general prosecutor to order his arrest
This kind of abuse against children should be punished with severe sentences. I wonder if these people have any feelings to treat children like this.

violence in schools-from the teachers?
This was insane. He hit them simply for the fun of it, and with at least 4 other adults in the room, no one stopped it. They should all be arrested.

Abusive Teacher
I studied abroad in Saudi Arabia and worked in Yemen as well and saw this as common practice for children. I have a good friend who's son admitted to being hit well over 10 times in 1 school year alone and this was when he was 11. While I have the utmost respect for the Arab world and their culture, I also feel that they need to step up against violence towards children and women. And this comes from viewing the violence first hand. I actually saw a 19yo female get slapped by 3 men in Yemen because a slight breeze rose her abaya supposedly well above her calf. I was told by someone who actually saw her abaya rise that it was no more than 4 inches above her ankles when it rose. It was sickening seeing this. 2 of the men didn't even know her.

Abusive Teacher
This man needs to be whipped publically as an example to others before being sent to prison. How did the administration of his school not know about this and why was nothing done before? What mechanisms are in place in schools to prevent abuse of children? We wonder why the public education system is so dismal and why kids do not want to go. We have some more idea now: ignorant, abusive thugs teaching fear and children terrified of a person that they should love and respect. The entire system must be demolished and rebuilt from ground up.

Wow that is sick. I hope the school and the person filming the video all get punishment. If they do it sends a message to the school system that this is totally unacceptable. Those kids look so scared. Shame on those creeps.
