Teacher Silences Girl By Taping Her Mouth Shut

Illustration for article titled Teacher Silences Girl By Taping Her Mouth Shut

A teacher in Miramar, Florida allegedly taped 13-year-old Jazlyn Freel's mouth shut because she wouldn't stop talking. "I had to cough, so I took the first piece off, so she went into her desk, and she took another piece out, and she put it on my mouth again," says Jazlyn. The teacher claims it was "just a joke," but after Jazlyn's mother Leah Freel complained to school administrators, they said the teacher would be reassigned. Jazlyn explains the whole thing, "wasn't a really good experience," but if you're curious about what exactly went down, WSVN's report helpfully includes shots of a woman having packing tape put over her mouth.

Since you seem to have such a keen interest in the profession, how about some stories detailing the thousands of teachers nationwide who are being fired for budgetary reasons? Or the teachers who are inspiring their students to achieve despite almost insurmountable odds?

I guess that wouldn't fit into the new tone Jezebel seems to be going for...I'm regretting giving this site another chance after the disastrous re-design.
