The State Board of Education unanimously approved changes to Michigan's policy on restraint and seclusion in schools at its March 14 meeting. The new policy implements the language in recently-enacted Michigan law that places significant limits on the use of these dangerous practices. "We are pleased with the Board's action," said Mark McWilliams, MPAS Director of Public Policy and Media Relations. "The new policy is another step in making the protections in state law - protections that have been endorsed by parents, advocates, and educators - a reality in Michigan schools."
