I really think "abuse" should be defined with more clarity.
I really don't think a small piece of verticle scotch tape to teach children to be quiet is a great big deal. They should have just told the teacher to not use that method.

Taping the child's mouth shut is like saying the child has no right to speak. (I'm bigger than you are, so I can force you to shut up!!) I don't agree with that.

If you need the children to be quiet to conduct your class activities, tell them to listen, if they choose to continue to disrupt, threaten to take away their play time so you can make up what was lost by their disruption.

Teaches consequences for their actions, and does not make them feel inferior to a control freak.
