That'll learn him real good!

"Instead of praising publicly such an excellent pupil the teacher punished him. I do not understand her motives."

He was making us slackers look bad, obviously

"The teacher kept my son's mouth taped despite the fact that he has difficulties in breathing only through his nose and he barely survived," the nine-year-old boy's father Slobodan Jakovljevic said.

This shows doing extra homework really can kill you.

He only did the extra work because his favorite website was down.

You get an A+ for that comment.

Uh, if the kid was dieing, woulden't he of removed the tape? They must have much stronger scotch tape down in Bosnia to keep the lemurs out.

Cheesejoke thanks for stealing my post.
2005-03-31 04:48:09 AM  
Looks to me like the kid just needed to shut up and let other kids learn.
2005-03-31 04:55:48 AM  
The parents need to murder this teacher. The court system will NOT give them justice. The only justice that could be served here is the death of the teacher.
2005-03-31 04:55:49 AM  
She should have just let nature take its course, ie. let the other kids beat the crap out of the smart-ass

Slobodan Milosevic's son gets what he deserves.
2005-03-31 05:19:00 AM  
Sounds like that little shiat just wouldn't stop hassling the teacher about how much better he was at maths than her.
Perhaps he got what he deserved - a first lesson in social science.

InflatableJesus, you misspelled "slashdot.org."

/Thanks Mike!

It's a spelling test. I guess you failed.

that teacher's reaction sounds like a flashback scene from a movie about an evil genius. it kind of sounds like my chemistry teacher.

teachers with power complexes feel threathened by smart students. or so i've heard....
2005-03-31 06:35:35 AM  
he should be shot down at a school shooting

Banja Luka, Bosnia-Hercegovina - A Bosnian teacher irritated by a zealous pupil who practiced maths at home even though he had not been given homework punished him by taping his mouth, a school head teacher said on Wednesday.

Me fail Englishes? That's unpossible.
2005-03-31 06:56:23 AM  
I guess that isnt really right, although kids like that always irritated me. I wished I could have taped over their homework-doing biatch-ass mouths too.
2005-03-31 08:18:55 AM  
Teacher was just irritated that the kid had more vowels than he did:

Cities of Sjlbvdnzv and Grzny to be First Recipients

Before an emergency joint session of Congress yesterday, President Clinton announced US plans to deploy over 75,000 vowels to the war-torn region of Bosnia. The deployment, the largest of its kind in American history, will provide the region with the critically needed letters A, E, I, O and U, and is hoped to render countless Bosnian names more pronouncable.

For the rest: this link should be to The Onion but they have taken down this classic story...

The student from the article (SFW) ;p
2005-03-31 08:46:45 AM  
Wouldn't this fall under the category of statutory tape?

Speaking of eager math students who piss off their teachers, we math geeks like to trade the story (which, for all I know, is apocryphal) of Gauss, the mathematical genius who annoyed his teachers by doing everything too quickly. To keep him busy, one of his teachers told him to sum 1 + 2 + ... + 100. To the teacher's surprise, young Gauss had the answer within a few minutes. He realized you could add the two lines:
1 + 2 + ... + 100
100 + 99 + ... + 1
101 + 101 + ... + 101
So twice the sum is 100*101, and thus the sum is 50*101.

And now I will await the rotten tomatoes thrown in my direction for geeking out like that.

I can honestly say this kid was probably being a deushbag and probably deserved his mouth to get taped shut.
2005-03-31 12:43:57 PM  
The little shiat should have known to strive for mediocrity.
2005-03-31 12:58:37 PM  
This sort of thing happened to me in elementary school as well. No taped mouth, but the teacher chewed me out in front of class after I did the entire year's math workbook in the first week because she was going too slow.

Some teachers just can't handle the idea that not every student needs them.

Reminds me of the time I got the biatch-out from my embryology professor for me looking at my embryology slides during down time in histology.

Seems that other students wouldn't have that opportunity to look at the slides at times other than scheduled embryology lab time, thus it was unfair.

/yeah, let's make sure education bears no resemblance to the entirety of the real world.
