Thought this was interesting:

http://www.turnto23.com/news/us-world/video-of-japanese-coach-repeatedly-slapping-student-goes-viral-091813

Basically, a high school volleyball coach was caught on a cell phone video smacking one of his players repeatedly while yelling at him. I counted at least 13 slaps.The school is "considering punishing" the teacher.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlpNLR_IbdQ

I can imagine how many milliseconds it would take for police to be called, lawsuits to be filed, and the teacher to be fired here if that happened here in the US. And while people will no doubt respond by whining "that's what's wrong with America," does anyone seriously want to be repeatedly smacked by their teacher in front of your classmates, while you just stand there and take it?

Anyway, how comes physically and verbally abusive teachers don't get more screen time in school life anime? The most we see is a bonk on the head with a notebook and a snarky remark about needing to try harder I hope this is yet another reminder to the people who romanticize life in Japan because they think it's like a giant anime: remember, anime is not reality.

Being slapped by my parents, I can take it.
Being slapped by someone else, I'm gonna have to kill a b*tch.

I've never been slapped by a teacher, but I have seen someone get slapped by a teacher in my class.

He also got heated up and angry at a discussion when we were all trying to figure out with way the High School was. (The school I go to, the High School, the Middle School, and the Junior high are all in the same places.)

They artist/writers/producers are probably catering to the audience who are still in school don't want to watch an anime about their boring adult superiors.

Well, it could be because most anime is targeted towards teens and young adults (mostly) and they won't be giving adult characters much thought.

I mean, look at all these anime... almost every character is a teen.

I've been slapped by a teacher. It happened when I was in 4th grade, I remember I was in a fight and the goddamn teacher came up to me, supposedly to break it up, and she slapped me right in the face. It happened in some country in the middle-east, now I live in the US though

Had the cane or the slipper at school a few times, was known to give teachers the odd slap myself though.
