Democrats seek to lift secrecy surrounding school seclusion and restraint
Parents say it's bad enough when they find out a teacher took steps to physically isolate or control a disruptive child who may pose a danger to others — but not getting the news immediately from the school is all the more unsettling. As Democrats in Congress work to craft a bill that would create a federal standard on what's known as seclusion and restraint in K-12 schools, a key component is a parental notification requirement. Democrats want to bring the sometimes secretive practices of seclusion and restraint in schools out into the open — and say it's key to mandate that schools let parents know when such incidents have occurred.
