    A lot of schools in Birmingham are in the press as of late for the wrong reasons. It's a very sad state of affairs, especially for all the kids it affects. The press don't talk enough about the good things happening in schools I find!

    I love how there is a picture of Sellotape, just incase we were confused.

    I love how the highest rated comments are all "Good. You shouldn't have been talking."

    On one side I think this kind of punishment isn't a bad idea but then again I would be just as angry if it was my kids that suffered this.

    What I don't like to read is the teacher immediately regretted doing this: was this immediately after taping her mouth, immediately after 15 minutes had gone by or immediately when the Head Teacher/Parent was involved.

    Personally I think the Teacher should be suspended, the amount of damages I see caused by Students to the IT equipment is shocking. I wouldn't just tape their hands together so they couldn't brake the keyboards.. I would expect to be suspended pretty quickly. A lot of bad examples lately in regards to the education system, you would think people would watch the news.

    I wonder if the parent would have been happy to see the child suspended? Seams to be the answer to everything.

    That said, it must have been a really bad day in paradise that made the teacher think this was a viable option. Would she have done that if ofsted was in? if not why not, its not rocket science.

    Talking in a lesson results in a detention, surely - and being sent out.

    Without condoning anyone's actions, this wasn't a child being gaffer taped to a chair in a Gestapo style interrogation or gagging. This is sellotape, that wouldn't stick to anyone's lips if you tried. Clearly it was just a point being made, not a physical silencing attempt. (Of course I haven't read too much into it, I'm assuming this young person hadn't had half a roll of the stuff round and round the face).

    Couldn't agree more, strange thing is though if she was their daughter they would react the same way. My mother would comment the same thing that maybe she should behave but if that was me or my sisters.....

    Not condoning the act as such, but when the father is saying:

    You cannot lay a finger on children.
    I wonder if that's why she wouldn't shut up...

    And my old Skl Backlash after school installs CCTV in pupils' toilets (From Echo)
    If that would have happened in my class im pretty sure the teacher would be on the floor I guess its all about the area .

    *After Re-Reading this I mean I wouldn't be putting them on the floor heck I wouldn't kill a fly but im pretty sure most of the hormonal raging people in my class would and have.
