n a truly heartbreaking story, a primary school student in Fujian province beat cancer and returned to school, only to be discriminated against by his teacher.
The 11-year-old’s father, surnamed Zhou, found out about this shocking discrimination when his son didn’t bring home any midterm grades from his language class. Eventually, the boy confessed that the teacher had not even allowed him to take the midterm test, according to a Beijing News report.
After being found cancer-free following rounds of chemotherapy, the youngster had been enrolled into a new school in Huai’an county, closer to where his parents lived. However, at the start of the semester, one of his teachers declared that he was “contagious” and forced him to sit alone in the back of the classroom, separated from his peers.
In addition, when it was time for a test, the boy would not be given one and would have to wait in silence while his classmates finished the exam. The kid had to suffer through this humiliation after being diagnosed with and beating Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer that originates in the lymphatic system. Like all forms of cancer, it is not contagious.
The school’s principal has launched an investigation into the allegations made by the boy and his father. Meanwhile, the teacher has yet to talk to reporters.
