YAN Yanhong is the teacher seen on Weibo, the Chinese twitter, holding a pupil off the ground by his ears. Parents of pupils at the Wenling school are unimpressed. You can also see photos of Yanhong’s pupils wearing metal bins on their heads, having their mouths taped shut and hands stuck to a desk. Yanhong says the youngsters, some aged 6, “were just having fun” .

A quick check on Yanhong revealed that she had no formal teaching qualifications.

Offbeat China has seen an  interview  with Yanhjong. The journalist  says  20-year-old Yan is in police custody:

Journalist : “You pulled up the boy’s ears because he misbehaved or something?”

Yan : “No, he didn’t do anything. I often play with him like this. We are good.”

Journalist : “ Didn’t you notice that he was crying?”

Yan : “It was really quick. All I wanted was to take a picture. I put him down immediately after the picture was taken.”
