This post is difficult to write because it acknowledges that the school system that I grew up with has let me down. At least one school in Ottumwa uses a room similar to the ones in this video. Iowa is one of only five states that allow seclusion rooms in schools and schools who have them are required, by law, to only use them as last resorts and inform the parents of every use. This video demonstrates, and I speak from personal experience, that this is not always the case. I encourage you to call your school to inquire about the existence and use of these rooms and if you think the school has improperly used such a room on your child, I further encourage you to seek legal counsel from a lawyer who specializes in school law.
