A first grade teacher at a boarding school in Minhang district apologized Tuesday for cutting a 6-year-old pupil's face with scissors, local media reported.

The apology came on the heels of the investigation that the Minhang District Education Bureau opened after the girl's family complained to local media.

The teacher, surnamed Xue, said she was using a pair of scissors as a pointer when she accidently slashed the student's face, according to a report on the news website She promised to apologize to the girl in front of the entire class and vowed to treat her like her own daughter in the future.

Xue started teaching at the Shanghai Liaoyuan Experimental School in September, according to the website.

Local television news had reported that the girl's grandfather found the nearly 2-centimeter-long scratch when he picked her up last Friday from the weekday boarding school. The girl said that her math teacher scratched her cheek with scissors because she was not paying attention in class.
