Lawmakers and Child Safety Advocates Urge Limits of Restraints on Disabled and Special Needs Students


In Florida schools as well as other schools around the nation, special needs and disabled students are unduly and aggressively restrained every day in the classroom. Many child safety advocates argue that in these modern times – child restraints should be limited or eliminated from the classroom. This is especially true when children are physically and emotionally harmed from the unnecessary or overuse of these restraints. Florida State Representative Dorothy Hukill – Republican from Port Orange, Florida is sponsoring a bill that would limit of the use of the public school use of restraints. Hopefully, the bill will pass and measures will be taken in public as well as private schools for the proper education and supervision of disabled and special needs children in the school system.
