A woman teacher ordered 16 primary students to slap themselves as punishment for failing to finish their homework on time, reported the Chinese Business View.

Zhang, 21, forced the students aged 6 and 7 years old to slap themselves in class at a primary school in Xi'an of Shaanxi Province.

Parents of the students protested the teacher's actions to the schoolmaster recently. The teacher has apologized to students and resigned from her job at the school.
