Mississippi considering policy on restraint, seclusion in schools

Children’s advocates are urging the Mississippi Department of Education to ban the use of seclusion and restraint in schools.

The department has drafted a proposed policy and is taking public comments before presenting it to the state Board of Education, possibly by November.

Mississippi is one of five states without a policy or law to govern when and how school employees can restrain students or put them in seclusion, said Jennifer Riley-Collins, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi.
