When I was in second grade I had to take a note home to my parents whether I did anything wrong
or not. I lived through it without jumping from the top of the school. People commit suicide for all
sort of reasons. Trying to pin this suicide on a strict teacher is carrying things a bit far.
One of the most famous self-improvement gurus of 20th century America, Art Linkletter, had a
daughter who committed suicide. Should we condemn all western self help gurus?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Diane Linkletter jumped out of a window of her sixth floor apartment at the Shoreham Towers in West Hollywood, California as she though she could fly while on a LSD.

Well written - I agree with this post. We can also call it self assessment and a way to build character and improve our life. Don't become weak by crying like babies. China needs strength of character not to be guided by 'outside influences' that strive to cause division and weakness.

In some remote areas, we can see some teachers who teach students with some extreme methods. such as physical punishment, harsh words. For that tragic case, the teacher can hardly get rid off his responsilibity for what he had said before the kid has commited suicide. There is some vague memory in my mind that when our teacher was exceptionally furious toward the student`s provocking bahavior, my teacher would always criticize the student with a strict manner even use some radical words. But for us, we did not take it in our heart. But for the kid, who commited suicide on account of his teacher`s extreme words, which should make every of us to rethink profoundly. How to cultivate our next generation.

why not the parents but the teacher should write a self-criticism? China already had too many such sad stories. In the end, teachers became a victim. It is sad for the whole nation. Why our kids are so weak and so easy to commit a suicide?

And you believe this.
