Clark Country Superintendent of Schools Philip Lanoue told the Athens Banner-Herald that this kind of treatment isn’t allowed at the elementary school.
“This incident is counter to our philosophy and how we work with kids, and we will not tolerate it. Swift action will always be taken if there are any issues like this in our district.”
According to reports, the aide put the tape on the student’s mouth near the end of the Wednesday school day at around 2:25 p.m. because the child would not quiet down.
Currently, Georgia is one of only 19 states that allow corporal punishment, but that could change soon, the Independent Mail reported. A bill introduced by U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy of New York last week aims to ban “paddling, spanking, or other forms of physical punishment, however light, imposed upon a student.”
Under the proposal, states that do not ban corporal punishment could face losing federal funding for their schools.
