I have two sons in school here in Texas.Their rights as citizens,my rights as a parent far outway your needs as a parent of a disabled child.

I get your sentiment here but actually, the law says otherwise. In fact, students with disabilities have more rights than the average "normal" student. PL94142 says every child has a right to an education in the least restrictive environment. This includes violent children with special needs...which is the purpose of this type of room. It is not intended to discipline typical classroom behaviors such as might be displayed by the average student. You have rights as a parent of a well-behaved student but those rights don't supersede those of a parent of a misbehaving student. It's why private schools do so well and another reason homeschooling is bigger than ever.

Thats how it starts out, until the principal decides to go overboard to make a point with specific student he doesnt like.

Sorry, I've moved around my entire life and while I've been in some great school systems, I've also been in some pretty fascist school systems. I've seen the rules get abused.

I am not heartless.I understand the need.It's not so much the room I dislike,but the poor judgement of teachers that we are witnessing today makes me fearful that this practice will meld into something more.Just as reasonable law are twisted by special interest groups.Why not have accessable camera systems throughout the schools.Teachers are not paid enough as it is,much less,having to handle serious behavioral problems.Funny how the needs of the whole are bandied back and forth depending on their current push.The line should in fact be drawn at out children,as they in fact,are the future of our society.
