Marcy Brinkerhoff Hogg wrote, "that is terrible and should NEVER be used regardless if the child is out of control or not."
Catt said that the isolation booth is designed as therapy for children needing to calm down.
I could go on, but you get the idea. "He said/she said" is not journalism, it's gossip, and is essentially useless as information.
Does anyone actually do or remember how to do investigative journalism anymore? How about asking some real questions instead of just printing quotes from the various parties involved? Here are some suggestions:
Of the 6,500 students in the Longview School District, only eight or nine are allowed to go inside, and that's because the school has permission from their parents.
What guarantees are there that this is only used on children whose parents have given their permission? Who monitors its use? What measures are in place to ensure the safety of an individual confined in the box?
In one instance, a female aide came up behind a boy, picked him up off the floor and dropped him into the isolation box. He landed on the floor and cried the entire time. In another instance a boy, who was placed inside the box for lifting up a desk, became violent while he was inside.
She said some of the eight or nine kids voluntarily go inside the booth for a break from stimulation. She added when the door is locked a school staff member is outside, monitoring what happens.
Abuse or therapy at Wash
some of them down when they're at risk of hurting themselves or others.
And for those parents who object, their students would never be placed inside because the district requires parent permission. Bate told KATU News she questions parents who agree to let their kids go inside the box.
children got a swat rather than locked in a box, but I am afraid of small spaces. I believe this school has developed a zone of last resort that will not send them to court, as the parents of those children have givenconsent. There is nothing wrong with expecting children to behave and follow the rules. Children go to school to learn not be baby sat. I know that while in school I did what was expected because I didn't want to be spanked by my teacher or my parents. Healthy fear is a good thing. when did we forget that?
"People have their own opinions without having a lot of the information about it. I would not classify it as abusive," said Sandy Catt, the director of communications for Longview public schools.
Perhaps they ought to change the name of the school to Nurse Ratchet Elementary. I am not surprised to see "professionals" defending this practice. States are defined as essentially the entity with a monopoly on violence in a given territory. Professionals who get licensed by the state necessarily agree with the definition and with the inevitable results. If we had a separation of education and state, we'd have as many schools as restaurants, many catering to "troubled kids." Far better results with far less cost. But then, no professionals.
The pictures show that from the outside, the booth is located in a storage area and has two peepholes at different heights. Inside, students can sit on the floor of the small padded room, and the ceiling features air holes for ventilation.
And Jena Raelyn Brown suggested, writing in all capital letters: "if a parent did that at home they would get put in jail!!!"
Comments echoed by other Facebook posters like Darren Pirtle asked "seriously . have the police been notified that this is being used??"
IF we continue to notdiscipline our children, then take all rights of the teacher to do so away, what we are left with is a padded room to put them in. Children need to know there are limits andboundaries. discipline of some form must be part of that. My children played on teams that won games or lost games, they had to try out for teams and playing positions, they knew that if they misbehaved at school there would be heck to pay at home and I nearly always sided with the Teacher. My children are all happy, healthy adults who know how to compete, win and loose with grace and honor. Nike Air More Uptempo 2016 Release I would prefer these Nike Uptempo Atl Shoes
But the district does not think it is abusive.
In a matter of hours after they were posted, the photos of the isolation booth were shared on Facebook about 100 times.
The original Facebook poster, Ana Bate, a Longview mother, criticized its use as abusive, arguing children are locked in for crying or tapping on their desks.
The isolation booth has been at Mint Valley Elementary School for the past four years. That's because the Nike Air Max Uptempo 3 For Sale
"Designed as therapy?" Designed by whom? What are their clinical qualifications? And what are the clinical qualifications of the school employees who decide when to "box" somebody?
"My question for the school district is how is that therapeutic if not directly opposite from this supposed reinforcement they'd like everybody to believe it to be?" she said. "If they are being paid to lock people up, get extra education and work in mental health or psychiatric units, not with children that have minds that need to be explored, need to be expanded, that need to feel safe."
Catt said the school district had never received a complaint about the isolation booth until Tuesday, and still, none of those complaints has come from parents whose students went inside.
Bate, whose 10 year old son is not in the special education program, told KATU News late Tuesday night that her son told her he saw several kids go in the box.
"It is concerning to us that there may not be a complete understanding of the situation," Catt said.
