Teacher Accused Of Using Clothespins To Quiet Students Suspended

A Central Ohio substitute teacher is accused of taking extreme measures to quiet kindergarten students last week.

The Amanda-Clearcreek Primary School principal sent a letter home to parents about a kindergarten class after a substitute teacher clipped some students' mouths shut with clothespins, NBC 4's Tacoma Newsome reported.

Principal Mike Johnsen explained that the substitute teacher used spring-type clothespins on the lips of four boys as a consequence for excessive talking and not listening to her repeated requests to stop talking.
