An elementary school teacher (31) who sought to make his elementary school students “understand death” by graphically illustrating “death” to them by cutting himself repeatedly with a blade, and ensuring they saw the whole bloody act, traumatizing them severely in the process, has been subject to a temporary pay cut.

According to the Board of Education responsible, in April the teacher confronted four of his homeroom students just before class, and then in two places carved open his left arm with a box cutter, showing the students both the act of cutting, and the blood which liberally welled up from the wounds.

One of the children subsequently has problems sleeping after witnessing this, such was the terror experienced.

He explained his actions by saying that he wanted to make the children “understand the meaning of death”.

After his instructive lectures he apparently lapsed into depression, and took a long absence from school.

He has been given a 10% pay cut for three months by way of a disciplinary measure.

I'd love for him to be my teacher.
I guess his punishment was fine, I mean, he didn't injure the kids or anything.
All he did was cut himself up.

Well, he wouldn't really teach them about death unless he actually died. So I think he failed at teaching.

A 10% cut for 3 months?
Just for traumatizing a bunch of kids for life?
Seems a bit harsh.

wow, that's... awesome!
haha... if he became a professor at some college, I'd definately go to that college and take his class

but in all personal thoughts aside, his action by no ways defines death
if he actually died from those cuts, then yeah...
but self-mutilating is just self-punishment
but on top of that, he cutted himself infront of ELEMENTARY kids!
still, I suppose a mere pay-cut is enough of a punishment for his actions
however, I don't think him returnng to his class would be a good idea
or the school for the matter

Fucked up... But realistic. We try so hard to shelter our children from pain and death, yet at the same time desensitizing them with what's on tv. I think it's good for them to know that even if it's just fake blood on tv, it doesn't mean that it can't happen in real life. We are mortal and we bleed... sometimes it's hard to remember that.


...........Still, the guy should not be anywhere near children ever again. He's obviously disturbed..............
