A Texas high school teacher is said to have taped the mouth of his 11-year-old student for 30 to 45 minutes, making it difficult for him to breathe.

Clarence Williams, of the Palo Alto Middle School in Killeen, Texas, has been on paid leave for a week, while the local school district is reviewing a report on the incident.

School officials did not provide details about what prompted the teacher to swallow the boy's mouth on October 23.

The incident is just one of the thousands of such cases reported in the US.

Ernesto Ortiz, the student's father, ensures that the audience hears the family's side. He told one local news channell that it took the nurse about an hour to remove the tape with ice and vaseline.

Ortiz & # 39; s son, Devin, said: & # 39; Williams called me to class. I said: & # 39; What happened? & # 39; He said: & # 39; It's not what happens, it's what will happen to you. & # 39;

So he grabs the duct tape and tapes twice in my mouth and then once up to my nose. & # 39;

It was announced yesterday that Tracy Drayton, a physical education teacher in Albany, Geogria., Will keep her job after an unpaid 30-day suspension after surveillance footage showing that she beats a student.

The unanimous decision of the school board to suspend was in line with a recommendation by Turner Elementary School Principal Gail Solomon, but against the superintendent's suggestion to end Drayton, according to WALB.

The teacher must attend an anger management course before being sent to another school during a probationary period.

This is just one of the wave of physical teacher incidents across the country.

Special Education Teacher Willie Swindle, who was named 2011 the educator of the year in the North Bay California school district, was recently allowed to teach allegations in the same class that he physically struck Michael Rosa high school student Michael Delgado.

Swindle is said to pinch the ears of Delgado & # 39 ;, & # 39 ;, & # 39; & # 39; and & # 39; draw & # 39 ;. The teacher has denied the accusations.

In Texas, Springtown High School student Taylor Santos received a beating and left her bruised and bloated.

The process violated the school's corporal punishment policy, which stipulates that the teacher giving the paddle must be the same gender as the student.

Instead of issuing an apology, the district expanded its policy of allowing opposite-sex paddle pairs. Texas is one of the 19 states where educators can beat students, but 97 of the 100 largest school districts in the nation have banned corporal punishment.

In recent months, an 8-year-old child with special needs has reportedly suffered physical and mental violence from his teacher in Mingo County.

The reported cases of handicapped children being abused within the classroom are rising across the country, and many more fall through the cracks that have not been revealed.

In 2010, the US House of Representatives approved a bill that prevented untrained teachers from using coercive means or other techniques that could cause physical injury to children.

The legislation follows a 2009 report from the General Accounting Office, which discovered thousands of cases in which teachers would have injured disabled students through inappropriate management techniques, abuse, or beating the child with their hand or other instrument.

GAO researchers found 84,354 cases of nationally reported abuse in the classroom in the 2010-2011 school year, including reports of inappropriate disability, isolation or what was defined by teachers and tools as other means for & # 39;
