Teacher Hit Pupil 53 Times “For Eating Sweets on Bus”

kagoshima-and-sakurajima_0.jpg

A teacher who hit one of his pupils 53 times in the face for eating sweets on a school trip, injuring his neck and requiring weeks of recovery, has had his pay reduced 10% for 6 months.

The 42-year-old unidentified Kagoshima city middle school teacher was overseeing a school trip when he spotted a 3rd year pupil eating sweets on the bus.

He took him to the staffroom and hit him 3 times in the face, and then had him accompany him to a more secluded spot, where he slapped him a further 50 times.

The boy suffered injuries to his cervical vertebrae as a result of the beating, and required several weeks to recover.

The teacher reported his attack to the principal, but told him he had only hit the boy 10 times and that he had only cut his mouth. The principal issued him a “written reprimand.”

After doctors told the boy’s parents he would need weeks to recover, they confronted the school with the report, forcing them to reinvestigate.

As a result of this the principal himself was issued a written reprimand by the local school board, and the teacher was given a temporary 10% pay cut lasting 6 months.

In light of recent similar incidents, the apparent legal invulnerability of Japan’s teaching profession is again coming under scrutiny online:

“Why wasn’t he arrested!?”

“50 times… somebody who does this must be ill.”

“This has got to be criminal assault.”

“50 times – your face really will swell up like in a manga from that.”

“So would your hand.”

“And for eating sweets? What a small man.”

“Teaching, where you get paid to beat and torment kids – what a great profession.”

“Probably some pervert who gets off on this stuff.”

“It’s disgusting that our taxes support these psychopaths. They are no different from the ones who protect the bullies rather than their victims.”

“I guess it depends on the kid’s attitude as well.”

“What is wrong with eating on a bus anyway?”

“Why don’t they fight back? If a teacher tried this on me I would have put a dent in his skull.”

“Probably some ordinary kid who cowers when beaten?”

“If a kid did this they would be brought up on charges pretty quick.”

“How do they even count it up to 50?”

“At least sack him.”

“They need to stop calling acts of assault ‘corporal punishment’.”

“50 times, seems more like he was trying to kill the boy, not discipline him.”

    A 10% paycut for only 6 months? That is ridiculous!! He should be fired and not able to hold any more teaching jobs or any kind of job working with children again.

    A 10% pay cut?! That's absurd! 5% would have been more than enough.

    The student got off lightly if you ask me.

    The poor teacher may have broken his knuckles delivering such a beating rendering him unable to "teach" any other students for months.

    I don't get it. You obviously recognized the sarcasm, yet you're still offended? It wasn't even badly done or offensive or in bad taste. Just a fittingly cynical remark on the attitudes and self-conception of Japan's teaching profession.

    I don't know about you, but have you seen some of the teens now days?
    I want to become a teacher just so I have access to beat the crap out of them.
    Call it what you will, but some of these stupid chav kids need their heads smashed on a rock, just for the fun of it :D

    I concur. Though if related to this child in any fashion I would ambush said creep and hit with a piece of rebar 50 times. I'm female and will take on anyone willing to abuse children and animals. Monsters all of them.

    Teachers in America are getting laid off...while teachers in Japan are held up with a pedestal. Time to switch career and go to Japan for a teaching job!

    In America, if a teacher did this, the teacher would be lucky to be locked up before the students parents beat him.

    In America, vigilante justice would have gotten to him so hard he's be wearing concrete shoes with a baseball bat embedded in his skull by now... I guess Japanese truly are herbivorous now.

    Agreed. While I don't usually condone violence against other people, this is a case where the adult is clearly in the wrong and since the punishment by the authorities wasn't anywhere near harsh enough, the parents of the youth have to step in and get some justice.

    He said he hit him 10 times. When principal finds out it was actually 53, he will have his full half pay cut.

    Learn to read Anon. "they confronted the school with the report, forcing them to reinvestigate." After that the actual amount of slaps was discovered and only because of the reinvestigation his pay was reduced by 10%.

    How can they have a better education system when they allow people like this to be teachers, and keep living after they do something like this?

    It's called cooking the books.

    The educational system is not really that much better when a child does poorly in what is the equivalent of jr high they get shipped off to a vocational school.

    An interesting note late bloomers like Albert Einstein and Richard Feynman would have gotten swept under the rug in such a system.

    Also, if their education were truly better, they'd likely have less hikki's, neets and freeters, etc.

    Well, young generation unemployment rate is much higher in Europe and USA, which means they have more NEET than Japan....

    There are reasons for that.

    Japan's educational system is all about test prep and nothing else. In class, theory, after school, cram school for test prep. The system pumps out young ppl whose only skill is in test taking.

    The mandatory financing, communication, networking, resume and interview etiquette classes that are all the rage in China, aren't even available as electives in Japan.

    East Asian education systems are all brutal, but Japan's is in all the wrong ways.

    It is because their teachers can do things like this that the children pay attention in school.

    Heads up western education.

    if sancom is any kind of reliable source, which it's not, they don't count the kids that drop out or are expelled or just don't plain show up, almost like they never existed. So those results are only based on the ones who actually bother to show up to school.Put another way, it's like baking a whole pie, then someone comes along and cuts out a slice, throws away the rest and says "Here's your whole pie."

    Seems Japans school bullying problem starts with teachers "instructing" students to use violence to get the desired result.

    Sh!* flows downhill...

    Seriously where the fuck do they keep finding these asshole teachers?

    You'd figure there would be some sort of back ground check or personality test to weed out wastes of carbon atoms like this guy.

    Personally since he put the kid in the hospital I'd like to hit him 53 times with a bat.
    But first I'd want legal immunity in case I cripple or kill the guy.

    become a teacher, you will have your legal immunity, though if you are a barbaric gaijin, I'm afraid the only choice you have is to become a US marine.

    I'd rather be a rapist marine; they get more action.

    Next time a US soldier rapes a japanese woman, we should just issue a statement saying, "It was a highly regrettable incident...but we should move on and not let the past bind us".

    What goes around comes around jap cunt.

    If only I was Japanese I'd switch to the teaching profession in a heartbeat. Unfortunately I doubt foreigners receive the same type of tenure.

    Actually I once met an university Teacher in Japan that was a foreign. He said that Gaijins have it even better than the Japanese ones. Like larger vacations and not having to do shitty protocol staying late and stuff like that.

    uh no. Most Japanese schools do not offer retirement programs, nor tenure for foreigners. That's not all schools, mind you, but a lot of them. To Japanese all gaijin are expendable.

    And being propositioned by horny school girls all the time. An acquaintance of mine was off in japan as a high-school teacher and he had to fight them off with a stick. One even took off her shirt and propositioned him saying "japanese vaginas are tighter".

    LOL japs.
