Fan Paopao, or Escape Fan, was a nickname ironically given by net friends for his irresponsible run-away from the classroom regardless of his students during the May 12 earthquake, and mostly for his unusual remarks posted on his blog saying that he could even abandon his mother, not to mention his students, when the earthquake hit.
He also backfired why a teacher should not flee away in that emergency but risking his or her life in saving others?! His views triggered a storm of debate on the Internet and he himself became an Internet stirrer.
The first time when I learned this I was greatly shocked. Yes, you could run away as fast as possible under that circumstance, and you became so nervous that you left your students, but why did you post those remarks on the Internet in that time when most people focused on the quake relief? Just to prove that you are distinctive? I can’t help but remember the Zhou Tiger case. I wonder whether it is again an issue of material benefit?!
In China, there is a motto for teachers saying “Learn to be an Excellent Teacher and Act as an Exemplary Person”, which, I think, is a valuable legacy passed down by our forefathers, as well as the fine tradition of Chinese people. But Mr. Fan Paopao, a middle school teacher of the quake-stricken area, defied this not very much by his instinctive flee, but by his provocative and selfish remarks. I wonder how a teacher like this instructs his students morally and virtuously.
As a human being, you could flee away, but as a teacher, you are unqualified.
