It turned out that two teachers did corporal punishment to a Deaf student aged 13, such as slapping him on the head and the face a total of about ten times, in the Osaka Prefecture Ikuno School for the Deaf in Ikuno-ku, Osaka-shi in December, 2012.
The student bled from a nose and his face became swollen red. The prefecture board of education plans to punish these teachers.
According to the board of education, the male teacher of his 40's and the female teacher in the 50's specializing in student instruction did corporal punishment.
The teachers called the student to the conference room as he has teased one of his classmates with bad language on the morning of December 19, last year.
They heard the situation for an hour and a half, and got angry because the student didn't follow their instruction. The female teacher slapped the head of the student twice, and then the male teacher struck and the head about 8 times and his face two times, pulled him down and kicked the waist.
