A sticky situation at an elementary school in San Antonio.

A teacher and a teacher`s aide resigned from Woodlake Elementary School after admitting they duct-taped a second-grader to his chair because he was being too rambunctious.

The teacher and aide told the Judson Independent School District that in their opinion, the student was too rowdy and would not stay in his seat. A Judson ISD police report described the student having his ankles and wrists bound before the duct tape was wrapped around his torso, securing him to his chair.

Police found a partially used roll of duct tape on the teacher`s desk and tape adhesive residue on the student`s clothing. Poor kid.

The teacher had been with the school district since August of 2010, and the aide had been there since November.

Obviously, the situation was not handled the right way, as for the teacher and aide who resigned in lieu of termination… they simply ‘duct’ out. They probably deserved worse.
