In Wudian Middle School, Changfeng county, Anhui province, two students fought in a classroom but the teacher did nothing to stop them. Afterwards, one student lapsed into unconsciousness and then died. This incident was exposed in the media and drew a great deal of attention. The teacher Yang Jinggui was labeled by netizens as “Do Nothing Yang” and became just as hot on the Internet as the teacher nicknamed Runner Fan. Yang has been transferred away from the school and also agreed to pay 100,000 RMB in compensation to the family of the deceased. He also received a major demerit. The Wudian Middle School principal Fang Qifu was also relieved of his post and given a major demerit.
The following is the first media interview of Yang Jinggui, as conducted by Henan Commercial News.
