Schools are back in session, and empty classrooms are once again atwitter with the sweet yammering of students. Ah, 'tis noble to nurture the sound of growing minds.
But not to teacher Mike Sterling, who drew a solution to naughty children from the pages of recent history and pulled a Guantanamo on his student's first-grade britches. Kansas City's Della Lamb Charter School teacher allegedly duct taped his student Logan's mouth shut and made him sit that way all through class.
According to the stepfather, who spoke with Fox4KC, another teacher told Logan it was unsafe to have tape across his mouth helped him remove it. The stepfather also said that the school knows the boy is prone to having seizures.
Mr. Sterling is suspended, and is taking some time to recover from the pressures of teaching uppercase letters while the school investigates.
