LINCOLN PARK - A principal from Morris County was found taped up by his students, but it was all in good fun.

Lincoln Park Middle School principal Michael Meyer challenged his students to read more books and do their homework more consistently. The more work they did, the more duct tape the students were given to eventually tape Meyer to a wall in the gym.

"It motivated the students to do more work but also it makes school fun,” Meyer says.

The school’s discipline adviser was also taped to a wall by the students.
