    TOKYO, Japan (Reuters) -- A Japanese teenager was forced by his teacher to write an apology in blood after dozing in the classroom, the school's principal said on Monday.

    The teacher later went to high school principal Hiroaki Dan and confessed what he had done, Dan told Reuters.

    The teacher had apologized to the 17-year-old boy and his parents, Dan said, confirming a local media report of the incident, which happened last Thursday.

    He said the boy was taken to the staff room of the school in Fukuoka City, southern Japan, after being caught asleep during a lesson. The 40-year-old male teacher handed the boy a box-cutter and paper and told him to write an apology in blood.

    The teacher left the student, who then cut his finger and began to write an apology using his own blood.

    Other teachers in the staff room did not notice what was happening, Dan said.

    "To ask a student to write in their own blood is something I just can't imagine," he said.

    He said the boy was back in school, and neither he nor his parents had asked to switch teachers. The teacher involved is expected to resume classes in a few days, Dan said.

    The incident comes on the heels of an attack in which an 11-year-old girl killed a classmate by slashing her throat with a box cutter, also in southern Japan.

    Pretty crude.

    Not Middle-East crude, but crude enough.

    It just goes to show how different we all are. If my son had been made to write an apology in his own blood I think I would be asking for the teachers blood in return. I definitely wouldn't be letting my child continue in that class under that teacher!

    I&#39;d be very interested to hear whether this teacher had a rationale for this particular stunt; the article doesn&#39;t mention one.

    Well, I bet he won&#39;t go to sleep in his lessons any more....

    This is what we need, no more of this wishy washy, dont discipline the kids cos it might upset em crap....I think there should be more blood letting in our schools.

    bring back the cane, the birch, the slipper....and if that fails....well, why not 100 lines in their own blood...

    I&#39;m sure you weren&#39;t entirely serious Sara, but I agree:

    Much of what is currently allowed to pass should, instead, be nipped in the bud when it first presents.

    There would be your prescription for over-incarceration, I think.

    true...

    This incident however speaks more of cultural ritual than abuse. A case of dishonouring the teacher. I have no evidence, but based on what was in the first post, the parents did not seriously object. Why? The Japanese culture is far more based on respect than many other cultures. Perhaps we cannot judge the right or wrong of this action without being aware of the cultural principles that led to it.

    However, I cannot imagine an occasion where this sort of incident would not result in prosecution and scandal within the UK, my experience elsewhere is limited.
