Restraint and Seclusion in Mississippi Schools, Department of Education Working on New Policies

JACKSON, Miss. – The Mississippi Department of Education has drafted policy that would ban the use of seclusion and restraint in disciplining children.

The policy is now taking public comments before it’s taken in front of the state Board of Education.

According to the American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi, the state is one of only four in the country that does not have laws that govern how school employees can seclude or restrain students.
