CCTV News:On October 10th, Li Tiantian, a female teacher of Taozixi School in Yongshun County, Xiangxi Prefecture, Hunan Province, published an article entitled "A Group of Rural Children Being Destroyed" in her WeChat official account. The article mentioned: "Since the beginning of school, the school has conducted inspections almost every week, and we will take students to clean up every two days. It is common to suspend classes and sweep the floor. My Chinese class has stagnated. Sometimes it is even necessary to sweep the floor two or three days in advance, sweeping it around, treating the symptoms rather than the root cause. After the inspection, the students’ behavior habits are still the same. In addition, teachers have to visit to help the poor. I have five poor households, so I have to contact them frequently. No, this weekend, teachers will visit the team again, calculate the income of ordinary people, collect and sort out information, and fill in all kinds of materials. There were several times to check the emergency, and our teacher had to stop classes and go to the government to work overtime, leaving the classroom empty. "
The leader made an appointment late at night because he issued a document pointing to formalism.
On the evening of October 15th, Teacher Li Tiantian sent a message to a circle of friends, saying, "The bureau called and asked me to rush to the city immediately, because the director wanted to see me and discuss how to deal with the article, saying that it had brought them great losses! What should I do? "
Li Tiantian, female teacher of Taozixi School, Yongshun County, Xiangxi Prefecture, Hunan Province:The county also gave me a job, which means that I wrote the truth, but it is detrimental to the image of teachers. As a public official, I can’t send it like this. Then, they kept urging me to delete it. The principal said that if you didn’t delete it, all major media reporters would come to the school to cover it, which was too stressful. I thought about it and deleted it.
With the heat of the incident escalating, the main leaders of the Xiangxi Municipal Committee affirmed Li Tiantian’s move and her personal situation improved. State leaders criticized the Yongshun County Education and Sports Bureau for using relatives to pressure and talk late at night, and promised that the county education and sports bureau would not make things difficult for Li Tiantian again, which would not affect its future development.
Li Tiantian, female teacher of Taozixi School, Yongshun County, Xiangxi Prefecture, Hunan Province:The whole process of the incident is that after I wrote the article and posted it to myself in WeChat official account, there were thousands of readings, and many netizens added my WeChat at the beginning, saying that it was well written and true. Netizens from all over the country recognized that what I wrote was similar to their local situation, and they themselves were caught in this dilemma.
Reporter:Are you worried?
Li Tiantian:A little worried.
Reporter:Do you have any future plans, or do you want to stay in this school?
Li Tiantian:Yes, because I had thought about leaving here, but the parents in our class kept me, but they still didn’t want me to leave, hoping that I could take their students out of school. Now it’s the fourth grade, so I’m very reluctant. Besides, I’ve been teaching with that student for two or three years, and I have feelings for him.
Reporter:In fact, a lot of disappointment, this matter may have a certain impact on you these days.
Li Tiantian:These influences, which others will not know, are very subtle. Leaders always say, I will reassure you, what are your needs and requirements. Including the leaders above are very concerned about you, but in fact many changes are subtle.
On the 21st, the commentator of Half-monthly Talk published a comment entitled "Please leave a quiet desk for Li Tiantian", saying that as a grass-roots party and government leader, we should focus on solving problems, not solving people who reflect them.
Li Tiantian: It’s a bit lonely to go to work normally.
Recently, some media reported that teacher Li Tiantian was cut off from her job at school after posting a critical article on formalism. So, what is her situation now? Why did she post at that time?
Li Tiantian, a teacher at Taozixi School in Yongshun County, Xiangxi Prefecture, Hunan Province:This is a report error, the workload is not reduced but adjusted, but the teachers in our school have adjusted. At present, my life has not been affected, and I go to work normally. I just say that you have such a thing, and everyone is afraid of being implicated. Maybe many people will not say how they want to play with you. Some people think that I have affected the year-end performance appraisal. Because of the pressure of public opinion, no one is embarrassed, but the situation is still relatively lonely.
For me, writing something like that is out of an instinct, and a subconscious is supporting me to do such a thing. This pressure is not borne by me alone. At that time, he asked me to sign and admit that my words were one-sided. I was only targeting a school. Recently, many netizens added me and sent me text messages, and they also confided in me, saying that you expressed our feelings, saying that it is the same here. There are countless inspections, large and small, and a lot of energy is spent on the inspection, various materials and forms. For example, netizens in Shandong, Henan and all over the country added me, and they all talked about this matter.
That article only put forward some suggestions on the current situation of education, why it caused such a sensation and made leaders so nervous. I think there are still many problems, that is, why it is true, and why many people don’t want to talk about it to our teachers, but they dare not talk about it, which is why it has become like this.
The local county government responded that an investigation team has been set up.
These days, a rural teacher in Yongshun County, Hunan Province, published a document criticizing the formalism of rural primary schools, which attracted many people’s attention. Although the article was issued on October 11 and was deleted that night, the development of the matter and related responses and responses have always made progress. The day before yesterday (20th), there was a response from the local county government office, which said: "Yongshun County has set up an investigation team led by the Supervision Committee of the County Commission for Discipline Inspection to investigate the problems reflected by Teacher Li Tiantian and the media, and the problems found in the investigation will be rectified in time and dealt with seriously, and the results will be announced in due course."
