Last week, we discussed the GAO's report on the abuse of special needs students in their schools. Today, CNN recounts a congressional hearing on the issue. According to Disability Scoop, the White House is "very concerned" about this, too. A senior spokesman says:
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.Are federal standards far off?
