What do you do with an animal but lock it in a cage? If parents would discipline their children others wouldn't have to deal with the fallout.

My God! Terrorizing little children by locking them in padded cells.
I didn’t think the USA could get much worse. It has.
Parents. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?!
Obviously leaving the situation up to lawmakers isn’t cutting it. Laws are made - the schools comply - then go right ahead and build more rooms of the same kind - only this time more ‘permanent’ - instead of the ‘freestanding’ which were outlawed.
Jared Harrison’s mother is right; isolation rooms belong in prisons, not schools. But the parallels of between schools and prison go well beyond throwing children into solitary confinement for misbehavior. The whole education system is modeled to achieve conformity and obedience. Institutions are lined with live-feed cameras. Students are subjected to warrantless searches and often forced to give urine. Police presence in schools is becoming more pervasive and lockers and backpacks can be sniffed with dogs. Attendance is compulsory. Students are having to carry RFID badges or give biometric identification. Even the parking lots are subject to warrantless searches. And that’s without even touching on the curriculum, which is very pro-statism.
