YTN released a report on August 23 of a Yesan County preschool teacher who is suspected of pricking her students with needles as a disciplinary measure. 

The teacher allegedly used this disciplinary method telling the students that it will turn them "more obedient."

Police ascertained that a total of six students were afflicted with bodily harm, and pinpointed a teacher identified by surname Park as the perpetrator of this horrific abuse. Police revealed that Park carried around a needle in the pocket and pricked the students with it and tied up their hands with tape every time they acted up. 

The abused children were said to be special needs, residing at social welfare centers, hailing from multi-cultural backgrounds, or living with a single parent. A police rep stated that the teacher told the students they will "be more obedient" when they receive the shots. 

Police have arrested Park without detention, and during investigations, Park admitted to tying the children's hands with tape but denied the charges of pricking them with a needle. 

Other teachers have voiced their concerns regarding Park but it was confirmed that the preschool would simply let Park off with a warning. South Chuncheong Province's Education Department immediately dismissed Park after gaining knowledge of the abuse.  

The police are currently investigating whether there are any additional child victims at the preschool.

as terrible as the incident is, i'm amazed at how there's only a single mention of her gender in the article, and only in the first sentence. All the other mentions of the teacher are gender neutral.

ok of course this is terrible, but those look like more than just "pricking their fingers" :/

So the report says she's pricking their fingers, but the police rep said she told the students "...when they receive the shots"? Isn't that trying to inject them with something? That's crazy.

So she targeted children that were orphans, culturally or racially diverse and kids with only one parent?  And when she gets charged only THEN does the school fire her. People like her become teachers so that they can abuse children. She chose the most vulnerable.
