An elementary school teacher in Daejeon ended his life by making an extreme choice. It is known that the teacher was cleared of child abuse after being reported토토사이트 by parents at the elementary school where she worked in 2019, but that she suffered extreme mental stress as related complaints continued for about three years.
According to Daejeon Yuseong Police Station and the Elementary Teachers’ Union on the 8th, Ms. A, a female teacher in her 40s working at an elementary school in Yuseong-gu, Daejeon, attempted an extreme choice at her home in Yuseong-gu on the 5th. Ms. A, who was taken to the hospital, finally passed away in the late afternoon of the 7th.
According to the union, Ms. A was accused of child abuse by parents when she worked at an elementary school in Yuseong-gu in 2019. It is said that the cause was that some students were restrained and disciplined for ignoring teacher instructions and harassing other students.
Her child abuse charges were dismissed after a year-long investigation by the relevant authorities. Nevertheless, it was reported that her parents continued to file complaints against Mr. A. It is said that these complaints have continued for three years.
The bereaved family told the union, “Mr. A suffered greatly due to child abuse accusations and malicious complaints that have continued since 2019, and received psychiatric treatment.” In particular, she said, Ms. A, who lived in Yuseong-gu, lived in the same area as the parents who filed the complaint, so she often bumped into them unwantedly in her daily life.
Meanwhile, extreme choices by teachers are becoming more frequent recently. Last July, a teacher made an extreme choice at an elementary school in Seocho-gu, Seoul, and earlier this month, a teacher at an elementary school in Yangcheon-gu, Seoul made an extreme choice in Goyang, Gyeonggi Province.
