Little girl Xiaoxiao (pseudo) was poked in the face by a teacher of an extracurricular class, Nov. 17, 2016.
(ECNS) -- A little girl got at least six lesions on her face thanks to her teacher after failing to give a correct answer to a mathematics question.
A woman surnamed Wang, mother of Xiaoxiao (pseudo), said she found her six-year-old daughter's face inflamed with six scars and two scratch marks after her husband brought her home at about 7 p.m. on Nov. 17, according to Henan Business Daily.
Xiaoxiao said the teacher of an extracurricular class poked her face with nine pencils because she did not correctly calculate the result of 10 plus 9.
Teacher Zhao admitted to the incident, but explained it was all because of carelessness.
Xiaoxiao's mother said the extracurricular class management handled the issue lightly, continuing to post special achievements in a group after the girl was injured.
Further investigation showed the class has no license to operate, according to the local education bureau of Gaoxin District, Zheng Zhou City, central China's Henan Province.
A lawyer said the incident involved corporal punishment and child abuse, and that the teacher involved would be punished in accordance with the law.
