Explanation

The end of this sentence makes it clear that the teachers in question are not happy about having to stick to a prescribed curriculum. Crushed, confounded, walloped, and tormented are all negative, but all of them miss the meaning of the sentence (and no two of them make a good pair).

Crushed means “emotionally devastated” and tends to apply to things that happen all at once — a breakup, not getting a promotion, etc.

Hence options thwarted, undermined are best fit!

Curb is the signaling word here. which means it restrict or check the teacher's creativity.
