Onslow County Schools refuse to release the name of sub. teacher that duct taped student’s mouth
Onslow County Schools will NOT be releasing the name of a substitute teacher at Dixon Elementary who “briefly” duct-taped the mouths of four students Monday.
Director Of Community Affairs at Onslow County Schools, Brent Anderson, said in a press released that the incident happened Monday at Dixon Elementary School. He said that the school’s assistant principal “immediately entered the room and made sure the tape was removed and any further action stopped.”
Anderson claims that the Onslow County School system is “shocked and outraged by this behavior” and that they will not “tolerate it now or in the future.” Anderson may be naive to the fact that, things like this happen in Onslow County Schools almost every day but it’s not “addressed” until it becomes an issue and the public has knowledge of it. Hopefully, Onslow County Schools can also address the bullying by teachers to students in Onslow County Schools rather than agreeing to arm teachers in Onslow County Schools.
In the press release, Anderson “assured” that the substitute teacher who identity is unknown, “was immediately removed from any further duties, as well as removed from substituting in the future with the Onslow County School District.”
Dixon Elementary School Principal Glenn Reed spoke to parents and the students involved, assuring them that the teacher would not return.
