An elementary school teacher in 먹튀검증Japan has been caught tying a student in his class to a chair for wandering out of his seat several times during class after another parent reported it.
The previous day, the Shizuoka City Board of Education in Japan’s Shizuoka Prefecture apologized, saying that “a teacher working at an elementary school in the jurisdiction gave inappropriate instruction during class, securing a student’s thighs to a chair with adhesive tape,” according to local media reports, including FNN.
Late last month, when a student got up from his chair several times during class, Mr. A, the homeroom teacher, wrapped cloth adhesive tape around his thighs to secure them to the chair.
This was brought to the school’s attention by a guardian of a student in the class on December 12.
The guardian told FNN, “(Teacher A) allegedly yelled at the child loudly, ‘Shut up’ when he made a fuss. She even yelled at a child who was crying because he was injured,” the guardian told FNN, adding, “Some children took a day off from school because they were scared of her.”
In response, Teacher A said in an investigation by the education authorities, “The student kept getting up and moving around during class,” and “I gave him a warning, but he didn’t listen, so he became excessive.”
Teacher A reportedly apologized to the child and his parents later that day.
The city’s education committee decided that Teacher A’s behavior may have constituted “corporal punishment,” and decided to review the matter and provide training to frontline schools to ensure proper guidance to prevent recurrence.
After the news broke, local commenters mostly acknowledged that “the teacher went too far,” but were critical, saying things like “she didn’t think about the other students being harmed” and “how do you make a student sit still when he won’t listen to you?”
