If it keeps costing our schools (and taxpayers) millions, maybe the abuse of seclusion and restraint will end in our public schools.

Bedford County’s school board and several current and former school employees are facing a $20 million lawsuit.
According to the lawsuit, a 14-year-old autistic boy was attacked on his school bus by people who were supposed to protect him.
The alleged incidents happened more than two years ago. Attorneys for the boy’s family have produced video tape that they say shows some of the attacks.
Video captured from a school bus surveillance camera appears to show an adult woman kicking and hitting a young boy. Attorneys say the women is Mary Alice Evans, a former Bedford County teacher’s aide.
The child is an autistic boy.
We need to keep squeaking our wheels. Wake up our children are being abused in school. School is not supposed to hurt.
