A Texas college professor reportedly taped his 11-year-old student’s mouth for 30 to 45 minutes, making it difficult for him to breathe.

Clarence Williams, of Palo Alto Middle School in Killeen, Texas, has been placed on paid leave for a week while the local school district reviews a report into the incident.

School officials did not provide details about what prompted the teacher to tape the boy’s mouth shut on October 23.

The incident is just one of thousands of cases reported in the United States.

Ernesto Ortiz, the student’s father, makes sure the audience hears the family side. He said a local news channelI that it took the nurse about an hour to remove the tape with ice and petroleum jelly.

Ortiz’s son, Devin, said: “Mr. Williams called me into the classroom. I said, ‘What happened?’ He said, “That’s not what’s happening, that’s what’s going to happen to you.”

So he grabs the tape and sticks it twice over my mouth, then once here up to my nose.

Yesterday it was announced that Tracy Drayton, a physical education teacher in Albany, Georgia, will keep her job after a 30-day unpaid suspension following surveillance footage that shows her slapping a student.

The school board’s unanimous decision to suspend was in line with a recommendation from Turner Elementary School principal Gail Solomon, but against the superintendent’s suggestion that Drayton be terminated, according to WALB.

The teacher will have to take an anger management course before being sent to another school on probationary reassignment.

This is just one example in a series of physical incidents of teachers across the country.

Special education teacher Willie Swindle, named 2011 Educator of the Year in California’s North Bay School District, was recently cleared to teach in the same classroom, alleging he physically hit student Michael Delgado. from Santa Rosa High School.

The scam allegedly “pulled”, “pinched” and “pulled” Delgado’s ears. The teacher denied the allegations.

In Texas, Springtown High School student Taylor Santos was spanked, leaving her bruised and covered in blisters.

The process violated the school’s policy on corporal punishment, which states that the teacher giving the paddle must be of the same gender as the student.

Rather than issue an apology, the district expanded its policy to allow opposite-sex paddling. Texas is one of 19 states allowing educators to spank students, but 97 of the nation’s 100 largest school districts have banned corporal punishment.

Over the past few months, an 8-year-old child with special needs who allegedly suffered physical and mental abuse at the hands of his teacher in Mingo County.

Reported cases of children with disabilities allegedly being abused inside classrooms are skyrocketing across the country, with many more falling through the cracks unreported.

In 2010, the United States House of Representatives passed a bill prohibiting untrained teachers from using restraints or other techniques that could physically harm children.

The legislation follows a 2009 report by the General Accounting Office, which found thousands of cases where teachers allegedly injured students with disabilities by using inappropriate restraint techniques, abusive isolation, or hitting the child with their hand or another tool.

GAO investigators found 84,354 nationally reported cases of abuse in the classroom during the 2010-2011 school year alone, which included reports of improper restraint, seclusion or what been defined by teachers and helpers as other means of “emergency interventions”.
