read in Asheville times that a teacher at hayesville elem. tied up a boy to a chair, taped his mouth and slapped him when he called her a name after removing the tape. told kids not to tell anyone; what the heck is this all about? it's been turned over to Penland and if it's true is there going to be charges? read the citizens times maybe our local paper will take part in this story, can't see our paper shuting their eyes to child abuse if it happened. We'll see......

I don't think that she should be getting paid while a decision is being made. Also, no matter who the kid is or whatever he done or was doing she should had never had took such actions on a child. What if there was a child that has medical problems and was acting out of control would she do the same to that child

Do you people not understand, "innocent until proven guilty!" Even murderers are given thier day in court! From what I read, the school has removed the teacher from the classroom and is in the process of doing a full investigation. What more do you want?

It may all be true, but I got kids of my own and I can assure you I'm not going to rush to judgement on what they come home and tell me.

Kids make stuff up all of the time. The article just says that the accusation has been made and that an investigation was made. While it's certainly possible that y'all might have a crazy teacher on your hands, I suspect that a) this would've revealed itself a long time ago and b) we'd be hearing a lot more about this incident (especially from the kids) than is being heard. The story doesn't even make sense. Are rope/string and duct tape customarily available in the classrooms? The more believeable outcome for me is that there's a really disturbed kid who is making up a story.

Of course, it's possible that it is true...I think we've all known crazy teachers. But I'm going to wait for the results of this investigation before I go calling for this teacher's job and license.

Amen, there is always two sides to every story.

I have heard that the teacher admitted that she tied up, taped mouth, and slapped the child.

It is shameful that people are rushing to lynch this woman before a full investigation has been conducted.

it was an electrical cord, an extension cord actually. not duct tape, just scotch tape. and yes, the slap in the face. and i resent the fact that you would degrade someone for jumping to conclusions when in fact you are jumping to the conclusion that the kids are lying. and we are talking about an entire classroom of 7 year olds, not just one kid.

Since you got all the "official" information, I would suggest you go to the school, in front of an attorney and swear to all of these "facts" that you have obtained! Your sworn testimony would certainly help with the investigation!! I don't believe in this situation the school is going to listen to "rumors", they will want the facts!!

I'm actually surprised that the school is handling it the way they are. I'm impressed. Lets face it, Hayesville people can be a little over-dramatic and act too quickly.. so my first thought was that they were probably going to automatically banish her, but thank goodness they are being rational. Bottom line is there are ALWAYS two sides to every story.. I think that the teacher needs to volunteer to do a lie detector test, that would clear up a few things. Kids DO tend to exaggerate.. and if they hear other kids saying things they will repeat them. This is going to get BLOWN out of proportion thanks to the ridiculous TV news reports, newspaper articles, and social networking.

I honestly think that the teacher should loss her job. I have heard that the little boy always was getting into trouble and that the teacher asked a couple of times for him to sit down and be quiet, but he didn't do what she asked of him. I feel that has a teacher she knew that there was going to be students that was hard to handle, but there was no reason that was good enough that she tried him down in a chair and taped his mouth shut and there is no reason whatsoever that she should have slapped him. I work in a nursing home and have to deal with residents that are sometimes abusive to the caregivers but if we ever hit or ever tried one of them down we loss our job and our cert. There is no difference in the job but the age difference. What would everyone do if it was your child that was done this way, how would you act and what would you want done about it?

No,I would bet the " lynching" will be sure, swift and greatly deserved afterward if she/he is proven guilty.
