Teacher Uses “Sexual Harassment Dice” To Punish Elementary School Students

sekuhara-diceInstead of determining a punishment based on the weight of the crime, a 59-year-old elementary school teacher left it to a throw of the dice. In replace of numbers, these dice read “kiss,” “forgive,” and “snot.” The Mainichi Daily News reports:

A sixth grade primary school teacher is in hot water with parents and the local school board after complaints that he was using kisses and snot to punish his students.

The 59-year-old teacher at Ogi Elementary School in Iruma, Saitama Prefecture, apparently had three dice, one with sides marked with the words “hug” and ” forgiven,” another marked with “kiss,” “snot” and “forgiven” among others, and the third marked with “snot” and “forgiven.” Students who forgot to bring something to class were forced to roll one of the dice. The teacher has apparently admitted to kissing one boy and acting as if he would put snot on one girl. He nicknamed the dice the “sexual harassment dice.”

“I made the dice while playing with the children. The first two dice were for boys, and the third was for girls,” the teacher has told the Iruma Municipal Board of Education. “I apologize deeply for my complacent teaching method.”

The incident was discovered when parents complained to the school on Oct. 14. The school invited parents for a meeting on Oct. 25 and made a formal apology. The board of education has also issued an apology, stating, “We sincerely apologize to the children and parents for causing such an unpleasant experience.”

    Yep typical BS from a predator who is harassing kids and wanting to kiss boys he should be thrown in prison for life if he only gets his hand slapped I think it speaks volumes as it seems it is ok to teach being a sexual predator I wonder how many other teachers are like this trying to pass on their own agenda.

        I agree with you that ‘throwing him in Jail for life’ isn’t the correct way to handle the situation…..though I’d agree with the prior person you were replying to that he is indeed a ‘predator’…..I mean he DID call it his “sexual harassment dice”! I’d say that’s kind of a tip off as to what was going through the guys head! LOL!
        My thoughts….Legal action would be appropriate, as well as getting the guy some serious Therapy. Perhaps also some monitoring of him for the rest of his life to make sure he doesn’t abuse any more children…..Alas I have no Idea how cultural differences may factor in here…Perhaps his actions are not seen as that serious where he is at, and he will get away with only a harsh talking to.
