A teacher in China bore the brunt of a vicious classroom uprising after he tried to forcibly collect a student’s exam paper in a shocking case of school violence caught on camera.

The Fanji High School teacher reportedly lost control of his class as he tried to collect test papers.

An all-out brawl erupted when the unidentified Mengcheng County educator grabbed a student who refused to hand in his script by the neck, according to CCTV News.

A video of the incident in east China shows the moment when the teacher-student argument broke into a violent free-for-all. 

As the teacher appears to choke the disobedient pupil, other children become incensed at his angry reaction and chase him into a corner where they beat him wildly for several seconds. 

As the male teacher tries to fight his way to safety, a number of punches and kicks are thrown in the scuffle.

The melee dies down on three occasions before the teacher escalates the situation again by mounting his own attack, striking a student in a cream jacket around the head. 

The same boy can be seen lashing out with a large yellow school book. The camera clip cuts just as three students hit the teacher with a flurry of karate-like kicks. 

Police are now investigating the incident, which was reported by CCTV in Beijing, while the principal of the school has been suspended.
