White House Addresses Alleged Abuses Against Students with Disabilities
Today the White House met with representatives of 40 community groups and education organizations after a GAO report revealed restraint and seclusion practices used with students with disabilities. A senior White House official told Disability Scoop: "The White House is very concerned about the restraint and seclusion issue, especially the deaths and serious injuries that have taken place across the country. We are committed to working with the secretary of education, Congress, and the community to explore solutions to this issue."
