“Feds Release New Stats on Restraint and Seclusion in Schools”
While checking my emails today I am shocked to see an email referencing Restraint and Seclusion in our school systems.
Not because it's happening so often but because the question is, "when will it stop"? We now have a second investigation on our behalf with the United States Civil Rights Office. This time because of the harassment, the bullying and the retaliation from the entire school district. Now, one would think that's awesome...and it would be if we knew it would lead to at least accountability. However, that can not be confirmed.
Even though this is the second investigation in one year...same school district, same allegations, same student and family...we have yet to have any accountability. We are just left broken, trying to pick up the pieces of our lives while school staff moves on with life.
Restrained 39 times in two days, left with bruises, broken mentally.... HOW MUCH MORE?
