A Chinese teacher has been caught on video abusing her young pupils by repeatedly slapping and kicking them.
The teacher is seen slapping four children over 120 times when they fail to answer questions.
The disturbing 30-minute CCTV footage was recorded at a pre-school in Taiyuan, in the northern Shanxi Province.
The incident came to light after the father of one of the little girls, only named as Mr Han, came home to find his daughter's face red and swollen.
Mr Han visited his daughter’s playschool and demanded to see the CCTV tapes, which revealed the teacher abusing his daughter and three other children.
He said: Within a short half-an-hour she slapped my daughter 43 times and kicked her twice.’
Mr Han added that the teacher slapped the other children 43 times, 27 times and ten times respectively during the short clip.
‘She should not be a teacher,‘ Mr Han said. ‘She is a monster!’
Han said this was not the first time his daughter had returned from school with bruises on her face, but he had always assumed she had been injured while playing.
He added: ‘The teacher asked my daughter to add numbers more than ten. My daughter told her that she can't solve it, and then the teacher slapped her.’
According to a Chinese news report, the teacher in question has been sacked from the pre-school.
