The Jeonju District Court announced recently that it has fined a 49-year-old high school teacher for charges of assault against a student. 

This past April 29 around 1:50 p.m., the teacher reportedly struck one of his students, a 16-year-old, on his cheek using a 60-70 cm (~24-27 inches) long cable wire protector. The teacher allegedly struck the student for the simple reason that their eyes met during class.

It was revealed that when the student resisted by grabbing the cable, the teacher slapped the student twice on his cheeks and shook him by his collar. 

The court fined the teacher 2 million KRW (~$1,821 USD) and reasoned, "We cannot deem that [the assault] had any educational aim and because the defendant did not attempt to right his wrongs, we have issued him with a fine."

Its always the eye thing at school... Look away while they're talking and they'll say you're disrespecting them... Look them in the eyes, they'll say you are challenging them... Look down on the floor and they'll say their faces are not on the floor... BUT eyes meeting during class is normal... That's the time the teachers will know who really pay attention during class... Somehow I feel there's more than just staring to make a teacher blow up...

.......because their eyes met? What is the student supposed to be looking at while the teacher is lecturing then?

At first I was like that guy should be fired. But then I remembered how much of a smart ass I was when I was in HS. I'm not saying it's right, but I understand how this kind of stuff happens. Sometimes, kids don't know how this world really works. "Play stupid games, win stupid prizes," is a very true statement.

I yearn for the good old days when striking children was in vogue...

Few things satisfy the soul quite like beating a smart mouthed child with a ruler...

Do you want to reply to your own comment a few more times or?

It's their comment they can reply to themselves as much as the like.

@OhMyGuy Sure! I don't mind if I do! You mean you don't also carry on conversations entirely with yourself? Weird...
