Schools get guidance on restraint, seclusion
from Disability Scoop
Before leaving office, the Obama administration is releasing a flurry of guidance related to the rights of students with disabilities in the nation’s schools. The U.S. Department of Education is weighing in on everything from restraint and seclusion to charter schools in a series of “Dear Colleague" letters and other resources distributed to educators just before the end of the year. In the correspondence, the agency outlines limitations on the use of restraint and seclusion in schools warning that the practices could be discriminatory.
