XI'AN, Dec. 22 (Xinhua) -- Teachers in northwest China were warned against inapporpriate methods after a pupil was hospitalized when his classmates slapped him under the orders of their schoolteacher.

On Dec. 10, Luo Yali, an elementary schoolteacher in Shaanxi Province, ordered students in her maths class to take turns to hit the ears of a pupil who failed to do his homework, according to an official investigation.

The probe was launched after the slapping case caused public anger about school brutality.

Luo, the 22-year-old teacher, and the principal of the Hongshan Township Nine-Year School in the city of Ankang was sacked.

"If my grandson was slapped by the teacher, I might have tolerated it. But to be slapped by all 50 classmates one by one? I can not take it," the injured student's grandmother surnamed Chi told reporters.
