Report: Families have few resources to fight restraint, seclusion of children

from Education Week

Families are often not told if their children are being secluded or restrained in schools, they often have problems getting information about the frequency or duration of such occurrences, and current regulations make it hard to fight such practices, according to a majority staff report from the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee. The report was released at the same time that the committee's chairman, Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, re-introduced a bill that would ban the use of seclusion in schools and severely restrict the use of restraints. He introduced a similar bill in 2012 and 2011. more
