A vice principal will receive a heavy punishment for forcing a female teacher to stand in front of a target while he tested out a training bow.

According to the Incheon Metropolitan City Office of Education, its disciplinary committee has decided to either dismiss or demote the vice principal of an elementary school in Gyeyang, Incheon. An investigation team confirmed that the vice principal had shot a safety-tipped arrow at the target with the female teacher positioned in front of it. It asked the Incheon Metropolitan City Office of Education to mete out punishment.

An employee from the Office of Education said, “The investigation team dismissed the vice principal’s objection, declaring it invalid. However, we cannot reveal the punishment in detail before notifying the person directly involved in the matter.”

The vice principal was suspended from his post on Jan. 2.

The female teacher had petitioned to the National Human Rights Commission of Korea to punish the vice principal for violation of human rights.
