School teachers sacked over child molestation

Beijing, Aug 11 (IANS) Two headmasters and a deputy have been sacked from their posts after a teacher molested his seven students in a school in China's Jiangxi province.

The headmaster of Jiuyuan Central Primary School and his deputy, as well as the head of Shangyuan Village Primary School were all dismissed, the China Daily reported Sunday.

The village school is under the central school's administration.

Six of the pupils were infected with a venereal disease and are now being treated in a hospital, the government said.
