School seclusion and restraint practices highlighted by Democrats

 


LAWMAKERS SEEK MORE TRANSPARENCY: Democrats want to bring the sometimes secretive practices of seclusion and restraint in schools out into the open — and say it's critical to mandate that schools let parents know when such incidents have occurred. In doing so, they are looking to Kansas as a model. Kansas requires schools to immediately notify the parents of an incident, followed by a more formal meeting within five days between parents and several school personnel to discuss the incident.

— That doesn't fly with some Republicans and school administrators who have been reluctant to embrace such a robust federal response. Citing work done by states, they say the federal law's passage could create an additional burden for schools.
