Editor’s note: Beijing-based Mingsheng Hearing Recovery Center, an agency that provides special education to children with hearing problems, has been investigated by the police on suspicion it was tormenting its pupils. Thepaper.cn comments:
The incident started on Friday, with some micro bloggers posting photos and video clips about the center online, which claimed to show the “teachers” beating the children with brushes and excrement in the center of the classroom.
The head of the center replied first that it was a former employee who edited the video clips and tried to ruin their image. However, the local police have carried out an investigation and detained two suspects for possible criminal charges.
