A student gunman has killed a policeman and teacher after holding more than 20 students hostage in a school near Moscow.

The ‘straight-A’ 16 year old Sergey Gordeev sparked a nationwide security alert amid initial fears his attack at his school near Moscow was a terrorist incident linked to the Winter Olympics which open on Friday.

He held 24 pupils hostage for almost an hour, and gunned down his teacher Andrei Kirillov, a married father with two small children, apparently in revenge for unusually poor marks in geography or biology.

He also shot and killed married policeman Sergei Bushuev, 38, as he fired a volley of 11 shots at officers surrounding the school.

Special forces troops were used to detain him after his father urged him to put down his weapon.

The armed pupil and teacher previously had a conflict over his marks.

This could have prevented the boy leaving school with a ‘gold’ medal, say sources at the school.

A dramatic text message from a girl in Gordeev’s class to her mother during the terrifying siege read: ‘A machine gun. We are at school. He is shooting.

‘Mama, aaaa-aa-aa. Save me! It’s not a joke. Mama. Its awful. He’s gone mad. We are hostages on floor 1, room 2.’

Gordeev earlier brandished two rifles to as he overpowered the security man at School Number 263 on the outskirts of Moscow in what was initially seen as a terrorist attack.

Soon it became clear it was a disgruntled pupil who had seized his father’s guns to gain revenge on his mild-mannered teacher.

The rest of the school was evacuated as police ordered the boy’s father to call him on his mobile and demand he spares his classmates’ lives.

One teenage girl said: ‘He shot the teacher in the stomach. Then he wanted to make sure that he was dead, so he fired another ‘insurance’ shot to the head.’

The father – believed to be a law enforcement officer – then donned a bullet-proof jacket and negotiated with his son the lay down the guns and surrender.

The move was seen as saving Russia from a school massacre.

Andrei Polipchuk, police spokesman, said: ‘All the students are alive, nobody is injured. The attacker is arrested, he is identified.

‘He is a student of this very school.’

Reports say the boy’s father was involved in persuading him to give himself up and prevent a school massacre.

‘The father of the boy immediately came to the school,’ said a local official.

‘Sergei Gordeyev was a straight-A student,’ said a spokesman for the Investigative Committee, equivalent of the FBI.

‘It appears that he had an emotional breakdown.’

Fellow students said he accused the teacher of giving him low marks so threatening his chance to get a ‘gold medal’ for academic performance.

‘He persuaded the boy to put down his arms and to let the children go.’

Psychologists are now working with the released children.

The dead policeman was named as Sergei Bushuev.

He died in an ambulance at the scene. A second wounded officer was rushed to Sklifosovsky hospital in Moscow.

Another policeman was shot and injured.

‘The person who took 20 people and a teacher hostage is a student in the upper classes at the same school.

‘He has been neutralised and all the students have been freed,’ Interior Ministry spokesman Andrei Pilipchuk said on state TV.

‘One policeman was fatally wounded during the operation and died in hospital and a teacher at School No. 263 was also killed,’ he said.

The shooting sent dozens of students scurrying out the school while a police helicopter landed in a snow-covered field outside.

It came with Russia in the global spotlight four days before it hosts the 2014 Winter Olympics in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi.

“Teenager who Killed a Policeman and a Teacher at School was not Taking Drugs”

The student who shot dead a teacher and a policeman at a school in Moscow#AceWorldNews says `Teenager who killed a policeman, and Teacher at School did not take Drugs according to official sources’

The student who shot dead a teacher and a policeman at a school in Moscow was not under the influence of narcotics during the attack, the head of the Moscow department of the Federal Drug Control Service, Vyacheslav Davydov said Monday.

After the tragedy, all “analyses were conducted,” he said, adding that “nothing of the kind” was discovered, Interfax reported. Investigators believe that the attack came about because of the teenager’s “psychological condition” at that moment.

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory and other Republicans will propose Monday to raise base salaries for the least experienced teachers, AP reported.

The move is intended to make those teachers more competitive with Southern neighbours and the nation. The document says the legislature will consider a bill to ensure all public school teachers make at least $33,000 during the 2014-15 school year and at least $35,000 the following year.

Teachers have reportedly had only one raise since 2008, leading to low morale.

“A Teacher that Teaches the Pupil must learn how a “Pupil must Teach the Teacher”

Today Nick Clegg has set out to provide a new initiative to provide what he has called “Outstanding Leaders” a league of Champions as he put it! This seems a little like the football league and we reward these so-called “Top Talent” with more money, and only the few get this chance to be a star!

So do we want more “Top Teachers” rather than “Good Teaching” as the statistics say we end up pushing up standards. That is good, but by what percentage, as classes get larger and larger every year! So maybe we could achieve seventy percent, but what of those left behind on the ladder of success! There are always those that do not make the grade ,those with problems at home, those with-out family support, these people stay on the bottom rungs!

They get forgotten sitting at the back of the class, until many years later they will not be earning the big bucks in Medicine, Politics or as a Teacher, they will be doing the menial jobs. There is of course nothing wrong with menial jobs, l have done these myself in the past, and still do even daily!

But l was one of those children at the back of the class, trying to attract teacher’s attention, knowing the answer when the question was asked, but too scared to speak, in case l was wrong, these were my school days! The fact was l needed both support from the teachers and my family, l received neither!

It took years of trying to make my way in life, and l took a long time to feel confidant enough to speak up and be counted, l was either angry at the system or angry at myself for taking it out on others!

Now l am able to write and tell other people my “Good News” there is no need to keep on throwing out failing teachers who fail their pupils, because as l now know so well it is the “Teacher that Teaches the Pupil and to be the absolute best teacher the “Pupil must Teach the Teacher” change for change sake is no change at all!

So l say to Nick Clegg let’s get better teaching methods, as throwing enough knowledge at some one does not mean they will learn, they have to be educated, on the how to learn. This method of teaching was around when l was a boy, and it would mean rote learning, of the Alphabet by association. The fact that each year, due to government intervention, changes are made to the curriculum, so many times it would make your head spin! 

Then added to that the pupils have to start learning a new way of learning, this confuses the pupil. So Mr Clegg let us provide quality teachers based on tried and tested teaching methods of learning! We do not just need “Top Talent” or “Outstanding Leaders” this just leads children to follow the path of success for the sake of money, not for the sake of being the best Doctor or Politician at providing people with the best possible services.

We need children to grow up to be better citizens first and what and who they become second, thus making for a better world.
