A junior high school teacher in Nagoya has been questioned by the Nagoya Board of Education after students claimed that she failed to help a bullied child who later committed suicide.

According to police, the 13-year-old boy committed suicide by jumping from the roof of his apartment building on July 10. He left a note in which he said that several people had urged him to kill himself, TBS reported.

Following his death, several of the boy’s classmates said that the teacher was aware the boy was being pressured by bullies to commit suicide and refused to help him. The boys said that the teacher was in the classroom when a group of boys was urging the victim to kill himself, TBS reported.

The teacher reportedly told the Board of Education committee that she was unaware the boy was being encouraged to commit suicide and had not ignored his plight. After hearing the teacher’s statement, the board announced that it will distribute an anonymous survey to the students to gather further information.

I hope that story is not true. Teachers should be trained in some type of anti-suicide training for teens... or something like that.
