Prohibit seclusion and restraint in school

The research tells us that restraint and seclusion only lead to more restraint and seclusion, particularly with an increase in PTSD. Allowing restraint and seclusion, especially mechanical restraints, ensures a greater strain on government resources in the future and a lower quality of life for the child. Please end the abuse.
