Another Idaho Teacher Investigated

A kindergarten teacher in Caldwell has been investigated for isolating a 5-year-old boy in a dark room at school for at least an hour. And that's just the beginning of the investigation. The kindergarten teacher forgot she had placed the boy in the room. She left school for the day and left the boy behind. James Cagle says he and his wife began to panic Wednesday when their 5-year-old son Tanner did not come home from school. After about 45 minutes, Cagle says he and his wife went to Washington Elementary School to look for Tanner who attends morning kindergarten/Kim Fields, KTVB. More here.

Question: What is it with these southern Idaho teachers -- and their unusual punishments?
