'A teacher has been suspended following claims that tape was put over the mouths of several pupils.
Parents have told the BBC that a teacher at Danesfield School in Williton, Somerset, said the pupils were being too noisy.'

'"When the Sellotape started to come off she put more on. She got them to keep it on for the whole lesson."'

Perfectly understandable, in my opinion.

It is understandable yes. Its about time teachers started standing up against the growing number of younger children unable to respect and listen to them. Maybe it would open some parents eyes about their kids behaviour.Sadly that is most likely not the way this will end.

While not condoning the method used, my sympathies lie with the teacher. Many parents are more preoccupied with earning enough to buy little Johnny/Jenny the latest iPad/iPhone, than ensuring their child grows up a well-rounded individual.

A bit of tape over their mouths!!! How old are the mothers of these kids, do they not remember the CANE? Tape is nothing in comparison,  the kids today are far too soft.
I remember having the chalk board rubber thrown at my head by my geography teacher, it missed.......my mum complained....because it missed!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I had a teacher that would repeatively say "Stop...Look...Listen...Learn" then we would fall in line.

In my seventh/eighth grade classes, it's not unusual to hear R-rated language from the students.  One girl referred to another student as a ******** right in my presence.  I reprimand them, and can even punish them, but it doesn't change their behavior.  They just laugh about it when they think I'm not listening.

One's reality is another's nightmare.

I never liked my school life. There was a professor who is also the chairman of that school use to beat even adults. Because of him,i entirely hated that school.Now My sis is working as a teacher in an International school where beating Kids is like a crime. I should have studied in a school like that.My life got ruined.

I must be getting soft in my old age but I think what that teacher did was wrong. It was bad enough in the days when I was in school, the boys would get the cane or slipper across the palm of their hands or backsides. I would think in this day and age taping the mouths up of kids to keep them quiet is a bit much. It might not sound too big a deal but I thought we were supposed to be living in modern times and past this kind of thing.

The article doesn't even say that the kids were being rude or mouthy, it just says the pupils were being too noisy. Teachers are supposed to set a good example, what kind of example is that? I'm not surprised the parents aren't happy about it.

If some teacher put tape over my daughter's mouth, I'd have a huge problem with that.

They have to be able to command respect without resorting to physical means....doesn't mean it's right and these kids don't need discipline, but that's not a teacher's place to put their hands on kids in any way.

If this teacher was really having enough of a problem that she felt she had to tape their mouths shut she could of went to the principal and asked for help.

I agree with Still Waters, it just sets a terrible example for kids.  "I can't talk to you, so I'll just make you be quiet physically."

Nothing like a rude, noisy student sent to the principal's office and when the student comes home, their parents have a "long talk" on his or her misconduct in the classroom. Used to be parents stood with teachers when their child is out-of-line, today parents get angry at the teachers and defend their children. Discipline is a required reaction in the classroom, though I oppose the thought of my kids have their mouths shut by duct tape. If my oldest kid's teacher in 1st grade calls me or my wife regarding his behavior, that's fine...I'm gonna take care of him. If he gets detention, suspension or grounding, he's gonna have to learn from his actions.
