Nothing is proven yet, but if this story is true it's disgusting on so many different levels.
The mother of a 5th grader at Dupont Tyler Middle School say a teacher duct-taped their daughter's mouth shut when she wouldn't be quiet.
Another student in the class says that the teacher intended it to be a joke, but taping a child's mouth closed is NEVER a joke.
The student, Reagan, told her mother "Everybody laughed at me, and then she ripped it off, and it started bleeding."
Metro Nashville Public Schools is looking into the incident and will take action if necessary.
