Teacher forces girl to lick up phlegm

AN intern teacher has been suspended after forcing a five-year-old girl to lick up the phlegm she coughed on the floor in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality.

Nanqu Road Kindergarten in Yuzhong District has suspended the teacher's internship and suggested she should be banned from teaching for life, today's Chongqing Evening News reported.

The teacher surnamed Chen, 18, admitted the incident and apologized to the girl and her family, the kindergarten's principal surnamed Qin told the newspaper.

Parents complained after their daughter said the teacher became angry when she couldn't control a coughing fit and spat on the floor, despite it being forbidden, the newspaper said.

Chen then forced the girl's head to the floor and ordered her to lick it all up, according to the report.

The intern, who came from a poor family in southwest China's Guizhou Province, had collapsed after the incident, the headmaster said.
