Events to commemorate deceased elementary school teachers were held across the country a few days ago, but in Daejeon, an elementary school teacher in his 40s passed away again. The bereaved family claimed that the deceased had been suffering from malicious complaints from parents for four years.

TJB reporter Kim Cheol-jin covered the story.

<Reporter> Mr.

A, a teacher at an elementary school in Yuseong-gu, Daejeon, was found making an extreme choice at his home around 9:30 pm on the 5th.

Mr. A was immediately taken to the hospital and received treatment, but he eventually died last night (the 7th).

It is in front of the elementary school where the deceased worked.

The wreaths of sympathy that were increasing in real time were filled with anger about the current situation and condolences for the deceased teacher.

The bereaved family and fellow teachers said that Mr. A, a teacher with 20 years of experience, suffered from malicious complaints from parents and complained of mental pain while taking over as a first-grade homeroom teacher in 2019.

He received strong protests for humiliating his classmates by pointing out children who screamed during class or lay down in the cafeteria.

Although the case was acquitted of charges after a year, the parents are known to have filed continuous complaints for four years, saying they did not want to encounter Teacher A.
