Mystery Violent Teacher Suspended

Date Posted: 2000-06-16

Readers have deluged the offices of local newspapers demanding that they publish the name of the teacher whose beating sent a junior high school student to hospital last week. At the same time officials at Minatogawa Junior High School are protesting to the papers for publishing the identity of the school.

Many callers said that a teacher is a very important role model, and when such a person breaches the trust placed on him, he should be identified. As the Japanese press routinely reveals the names of other people suspected of serious crimes, there should be no exception on this case, the callers said. They were further enraged when it was learned that the teacher continued to teach lessons at the school after the incident, even though the Urasoe Board of Education had suspended him.

Minatogawa’s Junior High School Principal defended the fact, claiming it had been impossible for the school officials to find a substitute at such short notice. However, he said that he had ordered the teacher to stay at home from now on. The teacher admitted the charges when questioned by the police.
