Teachers hold a revered position in society, entrusted with the noble duty of nurturing young minds, often dedicating themselves wholeheartedly to their work.
Nonetheless, this recent incident has both shocked and saddened many, as a young teacher reportedly succumbed to the pressures of her profession, leaving behind a poignant note before taking her life with a leap from the sixth floor.
The 23-year-old teacher had recently embarked on her teaching journey, having obtained her teaching license just this August.
Regrettably, the teacher had expressed distress about her excessive workload, constant reprimands, and harassment from her superiors, as well as a sense of entrapment in an overwhelmingly stifling work environment.
She expressed, "I never imagined that being an elementary school teacher would be this challenging."
However, within a few short months, her initial zeal for education seemed to wane, ultimately leading to her devastating decision to jump out of the building. In a desperate plea, she even requested her organs to be donated should she not survive.
Her sister mentioned how the teacher had previously shared her hardships, including working seven consecutive days, enduring public rebukes from her superiors in front of her students, and grappling with daily emotional pain. She criticised the school's refusal to take responsibility after the incident and their denial of access to the school's surveillance footage.
Additionally, a source close to the matter indicated that the teacher had faced reprimands from the principal the day before the tragic event. Presently, the family is seeking prompt accountability and an explanation from the school authorities.
