Several advocacy groups will hold a public meeting Thursday in Macon to discuss when it’s OK for educators to restrain or seclude students, particularly those with disabilities and mental handicaps.
The practice, which can involve drugs and padded rooms, is rare.
But Georgia education leaders have decided the state needs specific rules regulating it and has been working on those rules for some time now.
The Georgia Advocacy Organization, along with several other groups, will hold a meeting Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Mulberry Street United Methodist Church to share information on the process.
The church is located at 719 Mulberry St. in downtown Macon.
