Following in the footsteps of the "anti-parents" groups that formed on the Internet earlier, young netizens are taking aim on another batch of authority figures: teachers.

If one types in the keyword "teacher," a number of groups will appear with posts railing against teachers, and one of the groups is even named "Teachers all go to hell!"

Such groups were established by those post-1980s and post-1990s students who suffered verbal and physical abuse at the hands of "bad teachers." They give their groups names like "We all have disgusting Chinese teachers" and "Cursing those harmful 'false' teachers."

However, they established these Internet groups not for criticizing, complaining about and cursing all teachers but only those incompetent teachers who are not amiable, not good at teaching and not "engineers for human being's souls." These teachers are disgusting in students' minds, and they call them "false teachers."

Netizens accuse those "false teachers" of sarcasm and physical punishment. Those teachers not only include middle school teachers and college professors but also teachers at primary schools and kindergartens.

According to some experts, teachers' assertion of their authority is identified as the biggest reason that causes harm to students, and some teachers hurt students' dignity in order to assert themselves as teachers. They should learn to put themselves in the student’s place, because students, no matter if they are old or young, need to be understood and respected.
