http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/12/17/seclusion.rooms/index.html And people wonder why we fight for better training, education and treatment of our kids???? This quote towards the bottom of the article has my blood boiling. "This is a program designed for students with severe emotional disabilities and problems," he said. "It is a program which frequently deals with students who use various methods of getting attention, avoiding work." HELLO!!!!! The children have emotional and mental DISABILITIES! They don't WANT to be this way! ***Added after some research*** I found a website for this attorney's firm and plan on calling tomorrow during business hours to express my opinion on this so called educational attorney. If you would like the link, feel free to pm me. Mods, also feel free to delet this addition to the post if you think it's out of line. I'm horrified by the story but also angered by this attorney to the point that even if I get a temp receptionist, I feel I need to call and suggest more education on his part.
