Parents say schools are mistreating their disabled children

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A group of Tennessee parents says the public schools are mistreating their disabled children, and they’re asking a federal judge to intervene.

The parents’ complaints run the gamut from segregation, to overuse of isolations and restraints, to physical abuse. ‘

The lawsuits involve different school districts, but they all name the state Education Department as a defendant.

The parents hope the judge will order the department to hold the districts accountable.
