Pictures show the student, identified by his nickname Zhao Hua, lying in bed at Bozhou People’s Hospital on Thursday.
He was covered with injuries all over his body, including large bruises on his back, abrasions on his legs and lumps on his head.
Zhao arrived at 6:35am at Hong Xue Ying Cai Middle school that morning, five minutes after class had started, his devastated mother told video news site Pear.
The teacher, Lei, interrogated Zhao why he was late and the two got into an argument. Furious, Lei then picked up a broom at the back of the classroom and started beating the boy with it.

Zhao told reporters that this is not the first time he was abused by the same teacher
The teacher broke a total of four broomsticks while issuing the extreme punishment, according to Anhui Online.
Lei then demanded him stand in pain outside the teacher’s office while she carried on the lesson. After a while, Zhao then checked himself into the school infirmary as the pain became unbearable.
Medical staff at the clinic were shocked by the horrific injuries on the boy’s body and immediately alerted emergency services as well as his mother.
Zhao told reporters this is not the first time he was abused by the same teacher.
Lei had previously kicked him with her high-heeled shoes and issued him a ‘fine’ of 100 yuan (£11) because he had misbehaved, he said.
Lei has been detained by Bozhou police for 13 days for assaulting others, according to local police in a statement on Weibo.

‘The pair had gotten into an argument after the student arrived late to class. After that, Lei used a broom to beat Zhao,’ the statement said.
‘The injured student has been taken to hospital for treatment and he is in stable condition,’ according to the Bozhou Education Ministry in a statement on Weibo.
‘The teacher involved has been suspended from teaching at the school … and will be dealt with in accordance to the law,’ it added.
Various incidents of child abuse in recent years have haunted China’s education industry.
Experts have previously told South China Morning Post that abuse in mainland schools was due to a mindset widely accepted in society that adults can use methods they themselves deem appropriate, like beating, scolding and emotional abuse or ‘cold violence’ to control or educate children.
