There was a 2nd primary teacher committed suicide within 4 days! Mr. KC Yu died yesterday after he called to school principal for a leave. Why this case made me sad not just because of the high suicide rate of teachers in H.K. recently, but also he’s Baptist College (upgraded as Hong Kong Baptist University in 1995) alumni graduated in 1988 and i was graduated there in 1987. Though his major is Econ., he spent 2 yrs. after grad. in another school then became a Math. teacher till his dead. He also wrote a book for kids for overcoming the difficulties of learning Math. by examples of interesting stories.

What triggered his commitment to die? the education reform? job pressure? family?
