According to "A Violent Education" 2008 Study and "Impairing Education" 2009 Report by Human Rights Watch and ACLU, over 223,000 students are hit by educators each year, with approx. 20,000 seeking emergency medical treatment. "Teacher Immunity Laws" protect school employees from criminal/civil action when children are injured by school corporal punishment, legal in 19 U.S. States today. As of May 2013, there has been No Re-Introduction of proposed Federal Bill H.R. 3027 and earlier version H.R. 5628, both DIED in U.S. House Committee on Education "The Ending Corporal Punishment in Schools Act" Cost $0, due to lack of Federal Lawmaker Sponsors, yet Federal Law Prohibits Corporal Punishment in ALL U.S. Prisons! dont hit students dot com The “Keeping All Students Safe Act” does not Abolish Corporal Punishment, where school teachers, coaches and administrators legally hit children K-12 with thick wooden paddles to inflict Pain as punishment for minor infractions with No safety standards and No legal remedy for excessive force injuries or to prevent sadistic pedophiles from filming and sharing “school paddlings” of children.

Really??? Are you back in the 50's? I suppose you think black people and women should be separate too!! Where do you draw the line? Cerebral palsy is a disability, all kids who can't WALK should be in a different school? I know autistic children who are brighter than many regular ed. kids, so because they process things differently, They too belong somewhere else?? Some of you really need to educate yourselves before you speak. Separate disabled children into different schools? Really??? Are you back in the 50′s?

People with compassion and sense are. Plus, separate disabled children into a school of their own. It is absurd to have them in regular public schools. I've seen them and they don't belong there. They need their own place. Laws aren’t needed. People with compassion and sense are. Plus, separate disabled children into a school of their own. It is absurd to have them in regular public schools.

Teacher's are also victims of this problem. A young first year teacher, with absolutely no training assaulted from behind, by an autistic 17 year old male, whom she never met before, scapegoated and blamed to cover up the lack of training and over site in the school. 40% of the staff turned over during the 2006-2007 school year in RSD11, in CT. Same student had a few other issues that involved the police. Happens all the time across America, schools covering up issues, blaming the workers for lack of training. How many lives must be lost, how many lives and careers ruined? When are they going to get it and do something about it? Poorly trained teachers and aids, problematic at best, tragic at the worst.

The majority of students in the GAO study had disabilities. " i can think of two on my own. An autistic child was held face up under water, waterboarded. An autistic child died because he refused to get off the basketball court. His educator sat on him and he suffocated. Behavior mod. works, on the other hand, i get that children that put others in danger restraints might have to be used. But, the point is POORLY trained educators are hurting children. Children would be alive today, if it wasn't for poorly trained special educators. “Examples included a 7 year old who died after being held face down for hours by school staff; 5 year olds allegedly being tied to chairs with bungee cords and duct tape by their teacher and suffering broken arms and bloody noses; and a 13 year old who hanged himself in a seclusion room after prolonged confinement.

Perhaps they would come to the all-too-obvious conclusion that these kids do not belong in schools in the first place, if by school we mean places that foster and support intellectual achievement. And they might come to the conclusion that restraints properly applied are a reasonable solution for keeping everyone as safe as possible, given the circumstances. As for parents who complain about how their out of control and badly behaved children are treated in a situation where caregivers have many such children to deal with - they would have nothing to complain about if they were taking care of their own kids rather than dumping them on the school system so they can have a break. When do teachers get a break? After all they are responsible for the out of control kids of many parents who have the luxury of free babysitting aka "school" for several hours during the day.

Sad to say - but some children are "dumped" so parents can take a break. IF a teacher wants to work with the EXTREMELY disabled - then that person should be paid for those services only and NOT part of a wide ranging system where certain disabled children should not be housed - and sorry - but that IS the truth.
