Wow. This is absolutely inexcusable. Physically removing this boy's freedom to speak. What kind of a lesson is this teacher teaching?
If the kid is just being disruptive, I don't have that much problem with this.
Outside of school the kid can be a mouth if he wants to.
In school their should be some reasonable amount of respect show to the teacher.
It is a lack of respect for teachers and the knowlege they impart that is what is wrecking our schools.
This child was probably disrupting the learning for an entire classroom.
This child has NO RIGHT to destroy the learning of others.
He can drop out or be home schooled if his mother objects.
(from the source article)
No charges have been filed in the case and police weren't releasing the offense report because the investigation is still under way. They are investigating the case as possible child abuse.
It was not until the 19th century that children were granted the same legal status as domesticated animals with regard to protection against cruelty and/or neglect.
Emotional abuse is the third most frequently reported form of child abuse and includes acts or omissions by the parents or other caregivers that could cause serious behavioral, emotional, or mental disorders. For example, the parents/caregivers may use extreme or bizarre forms of punishment, such as confinement of a child in a dark closet.Emotional child abuse is also sometimes termed psychological child abuse, verbal child abuse, or mental injury of a child.
Re-reading the thread, I'm thinking, "Man! It's like these people think that kids won't turn out right if the kids don't get their heads duct taped."
Discipline starts in the home and when they do not get it at home they should get it in school.
It is not as if the teacher killed the brat, she just shut him up.
Zip you need to get a grip on life, no offense meant, but you side with the kids all the time and that is wrong.
