Special Education Controversy
Some parents in the Francis Howell School District recently filed complaints about the use of padded seclusion rooms in schools. To me, padded seclusion rooms sound outrageous in a regular neighborhood school, although some commenters on the article say that increased mainstreaming brings some children with severe behavior problems into schools that have no choice but to use these rooms.
Anyone have thoughts on this? (Other than speculations that Nadya Suleman’s children will end up in these rooms in a few years?)
