Report on school restraint prompts U.S. House hearing

A National Disability Rights Network report on U.S. children who have been hurt or died after restraint or seclusion at school has prompted concern among some U.S. lawmakers. "This report raises serious questions about the treatment of schoolchildren, the qualifications and training of staff, and what actions have been taken to address these unconscionable practices," said Rep. George Miller, D-Calif., who chairs the House education committee. "No child should be at risk or in danger while at school, no matter what the circumstances." Google/The Associated Press
