A teacher in the Oakridge School District has been placed on paid administrative leave after allegedly taping a student to a chair because he wouldn’t sit down.
Superintendent Don Kordosky declined to identify the teacher Tuesday, but confirmed she was removed from her Oakridge Elementary School classroom last week after the mother of a 9-year-old boy reported the May 28 incident.
The boy’s mother, Becky Faile, does not have a listed phone number and could not be reached for comment Tuesday night. In interviews with local television stations, she said the teacher taped her son from his knees to his chest after he refused requests to sit down.
Faile said her son’s poor behavior was not a strong enough reason for him to be humiliated in front of his peers.
