AURORA, Colo. – Police say no crime occurred when a second-grade Colorado teacher taped her students’ mouth shut when they wouldn’t be quiet.

Police interviewed the teacher at Fulton Academy in the suburb of Aurora after a student told her mother who then reported Thursday’s incident to police. The student confirmed to police the teacher’s statement to an officer that it was a joke, the children were laughing, and had asked that their mouths be taped.

In her statement to police, the teacher said she didn’t “think anything bad” about placing tape a small, vertical strip of transparent tape on all 28 students’ mouths.

“The incident did not meet the elements of any municipal violation or state statute,” Aurora police said in a statement.

The unidentified teacher is on paid administrative leave while the Aurora Public Schools district investigates.

Parents may be the biggest problem in our schools today.

It seems like parents are just shifting all the work to the teachers these days.
As a parent you have a lot of responsibilities to your children. Most people just put their kids in front of the tv and that's it.
No more proper parenting like 10 or 20 years ago when I was a child.
I was still told to stay please and thank you to other people, be quiet when adults talk, .....

And we all wonder why kids are out of control and try to rape/shoot their parents

Kids are a constant job that never stops

Put kids in front of TV is slightly better than those parents who think all the bad behaviors their kids do are "cute", and laugh about it in front of the kids, so their kids have positive feedback about the bad behaviors.
