A substitute teacher at Maxdale Elementary School in Killeen placed duct tape over the mouths of 10 fifth-grade students Thursday, according to a news release from the Killeen Independent School District.

Three other students put duct tape over their own mouths as a result of the substitute teacher’s actions, the release said.

You need to fix the headline. It sounds like a regular teacher at Maxdale did it. It was a SUBSTITUTE TEACHER! And that sub needs to be named so other schools won't get that same sub.


Not released probably because investigation is undergoing, not guilty until proven otherwise by an investigation, right now is allegations.
