This is the moment a teacher pushes a student against a wall and manhandles him out of the classroom because he got up from his desk to pick up his dropped pen.
The incident took place in the city of Khabarovsk in the far-eastern Russian region of Khabarovsk Krai, and it was shared on social media on Tuesday, 21st December.
In the video, the physics teacher identified as Sergei R., age not reported, is seen swearing at the boy as he pushes him against a wall and manhandles him out of the classroom while other students remain silent and sheepishly avert their gaze.
According to local reports, the burly teacher reacted angrily when the student got up from his desk to pick up his pen, which had fallen on the floor.
The teacher, a former military serviceman, reportedly became outraged because the boy had disrupted the class.
Local media said that it was not the first time that the teacher had used violence against his pupils. Last year, he allegedly head-butted another student from across the desk, but he was eventually allowed to keep his job after reaching an agreement with the parents.
The teacher told local media: “Soon there will be a meeting with the boy’s parents. I do not know who is to blame for what happened.”
The Regional Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation has confirmed that it is investigating the matter and a decision will soon be made on the next course of action.
