Lawsuit seeks info on Ohio school's timeout rooms



Published: Thu, March 8, 2012 @ 12:21 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A federal lawsuit seeks information on the Columbus city school district’s use of timeout rooms for children with severe emotional and behavioral problems.

The lawsuit filed by the Ohio Legal Rights Service was sparked by a parent’s complaint to the agency that her autistic son had been placed in such a room where he contracted a staph infection.

The lawsuit filed Monday said the student was afraid of the room and afraid of returning to school.

The lawsuit alleges the district has failed to provide the legal rights group with documents it requested about the rooms, including how many the district has and the names of students placed in them during this school year.

District spokesman Jeff Warner told The Columbus Dispatch the district’s lawyers are reviewing the lawsuit.

lets just go back to the old days with the nice big paddle...parents need to be parents, and quit expecting teachers/schools to be parents/disciplinarians/educators/babysitters...

danikytn,

Can't you read?

A parent complained that her autistic son was locked in a room where he contracted a staph infection.

Do know anything about autism? Or how about what a staph infection is?

Would you be upset if that happened to your kid?Is it Ok because the boy has autism?

But, you suggest paddling? And judge the parent for wanting the school and teachers to discipline the child. They locked him in a room like an animal in a cage! Disgusting! What kind of education is that?

You're a dumb*ss.
