Call #2: The Impact of Corporal Punishment, Restraint and Seclusion, and How Education Stimulus Dollars Can Be Used to Solve Part of the Pushout Problem

The second call of the series will discuss how the disproportionate use of corporal punishment and the harmful effects of restraint and seclusion contribute to the pushout problem for students with disabilities.  The call will also address how schools can better serve the needs of students with disabilities through the use of programs such as Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) and how the education stimulus dollars can be used for such purposes.
