      An angry outburst led to a three-day suspension for a Vancouver teacher.

      According to a ruling by the B.C.'s Commissioner for Teacher Regulation, Maple Fun Sun Low has agreed to complete a course by September 1 called "The Mindful Educator in Managing Conflict", which is offered by the Justice Institute of B.C.

      This came after Low lost his cool while teaching a grade 12 class on April 3.

      According to an agreed-upon statement of facts, five female students were playing cards.

      "Thinking they were still playing when he was handing out papers to the class, Low began yelling at one of the students, saying: 'Turn around so that you can listen. Fuck this. You guys are fucking bitches and you should go to a coffee shop if you want to play cards.' This was done in front of the entire class."

      The ruling goes on to say that he continued yelling and calling them "fucking bitches" while also accusing them of being disrespectful and rude.

      "Low compared these students to other students in the class who were Asian and told them that they would get nowhere in life, that they should leave his class and never come back, and that he would give them 50% and they would never have to see each other again," the decision continues. "One of the students told Low that she was 'shook.' He responded by saying 'fucking bullshit, this is bullshit, you should be, fucking bitches.' "

      One student left the room in tears.

      The consent resolution agreement was signed on July 23 and posted on the B.C Teaching Regulation website earlier this month.
