Ohio Schools Using Seclusion As Punishment

A months long investigation by The Columbus Dispatch and public radio's StateImpact Ohio team finds that about 40 percent of Ohio public schools sometimes put students in "seclusion rooms" when they become violent, unmanageable or disruptive. The precipitating behavior may be serious, or relatively minor.

The full story will be reported Sunday in The Dispatch and online by the public radio consortium. 
StateImpact Editor M.L. Schultze spoke with reporters Jennifer Smith Richards, Molly Bloom and Ida Liezkovszky about this seldom explored space in public schools. 

Additional Information

StateImpact Ohio is a collaboration between NPR and public radio stations WCPN, WKSU and WOSU.
