Parents beat a teacher in Kompolt, Heves County, Northern Hungary. Based on the recent information shared by the local police, a teacher suffered severe injuries after relatives of a student who he allegedly hit caught him in a bus stop and beat him. The school in question will remain closed next week.
According to egriugyek.hu, the sad incident happened on Friday afternoon. The male teacher slapped the student in the morning at school, but later the relatives of the boy caught him in the bus stop. The police told the news website that the educator suffered severe injuries in the incident.
Kompolt is a small village, so everybody still talks about the events. Locals say that the boy returned home showing a palm print on his face. Therefore, relatives of the boy went to the doctor and reported the issue to the police. However, before police could do anything, they met the teacher in a bus stop and beat him so severely that, allegedly, even his nose broke.
The director of the school said in a Saturday statement that “as a school leader, as an educator, and as a private person, I condemn all forms of violence.” Therefore, he asked everybody to keep calm and do nothing in haste. Furthermore, he said that
nobody should use social media as a channel to provoke.
Instead, he would like it to be a means of solving the problem. He added that he hopes they can continue teaching ordinarily as soon as possible.

Fidesz’s local MP, László Horváth, said that it is unacceptable to beat a teacher and added that Kompolt needs school guards. Therefore, he already took proper precautions. “All forms of school violence is unacceptable. (…) Where there is violence, nobody can learn, and nobody can teach,” he concluded.
Interestingly, school guards could have done nothing because the events happened outside the school.
The school announced on its Facebook page on Saturday that they extended the autumn holiday and will continue to teach on November 2. However, they did not reveal the reason behind their decision, so locals suspect that it is because of the conflict.
