IT HAPPENED LAST MONTH AT AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN SOUTHEAST HOUSTON.
THE BOY’S MOTHER SAYS THE TEACHER MADE HER SON PUT TAPE OVER HIS MOUTH BECAUSE HE WOULDN’T STOP TALKING IN CLASS
“Putting him in the corner, that’s fine. Putting tape over his mouth — way over the top.” -MotherΒ Melissa Ordonez
THE TEACHER IS NOW REASSIGNED TO ANOTHER SCHOOL.
BUT…THE BOY’S MOTHER SAYS THAT’S NOT ENOUGH.

    I had a 4th grade teacher, she used tape on kids who wouldn’t stop talking. One boy, the worst in the class, got his mouth taped shut a number of times. I remember him sitting at his desk with athletic tape wrapped around and around and around his mouth and head, and more tape plastered all over his mouth and jaw. Not another word out of him for the rest of the day!

    This was early 1970s so no one ever imagined our teacher might get in trouble for what she did. It was just classroom discipline. How times do change!
