BY CHINA DAILY

Three officials in Wuxi, East China’s Jiangsu province, have been given Party and administrative punishments on Thursday over an inappropriate question about whether kindergarten children were involved in gangs, the local government said on its official Wechat account.

According to the government of Wuxi’s Xishan district, Feng Dongyan, director and Party chief of the Xishan Education Bureau, has been given the punishment of warning within the Party.

Wang Zhaoyu, director of the educational bureau’s general office, has been given a serious warning within the Party and removed from office. Lu Zhongxian, director of the bureau’s educational equipment and student aid management center, was also given a serious warning and dismissed.

On Tuesday, a picture showing a questionnaire that a local kindergarten had used to ask children whether they were involved in gangs went viral on the internet. The local educational bureau said that the research was meant to stop bullies in kindergartens instead of finding gangster members.
