How schools underreporting use of restraint, seclusion

Government schools have reported on the use of restraint and separation to control the behavior of students on a large scale, a federal monitoring agency said on Tuesday.

The Government Accountability Office expands the reporting of errors in New York City, Philadelphia and other areas in the Civil Rights Data Collection Department of Education for 2015-16 when it should be indicated that the data were not available.

The State Accountability Office said that seven out of seven American counties have reported such incidents in which the students were not physically arrested or arrested in different areas. Maximum remedies are used only when students are likely to harm themselves or others, but have not been used for students for the disabled and boys.

Education Minister Betsy Davos announced in January an initiative to overcome the inappropriate use of measures. The Civil Rights Office will work with the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation Services to provide technical assistance and assistance to government schools, regions and educational agencies and to strengthen implementation activities.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) said that collection of accurate data on civil rights is necessary to enforce those laws which protect students from discrimination on the basis of caste, gender or disability.

“In the absence of credible and accurate statistics, neither education nor public can know the publicity of restraint and separation in public schools,” she said.

Of the school systems reporting zero accidents in 2015-2015, 10 country’s largest educational systems, each of which has 100,000 students or more.

In Virginia, Fairfax County Public Schools reported incidents of that year and reported more than 1,600 school years in 2017. The air education department only said that zero actually had zero accidents.

“While it is difficult to know the full limit of abatement and lack of reporting in the CRDC, the fact is that one of the top ten provinces reporting zero has actually confirmed that there is no incident in it which is 70 percent Shows zero accidents with the area of ​​public schools in the country “.

He said that the Ministry of Education had always published the data repeatedly without fixing known errors.

In its response, the Ministry of Education agreed to clarify the reporting process for the forward areas, but said that it will not be possible to fix the previous errors in the published files continuously. Data of civil rights is collected every two years.

“We agree with the Government Accountability Office that the quality and accuracy of the data are very important, especially on the issue of restraint and separation, and that help in ensuring proper use of behavioral strategies and equipment in the wake of careful reporting of possible abuse. Which these devices are used in randomly.
