Georgia's Board of Education has voted to ban the use of seclusion rooms and limit the practice of restraint on students in the state's schools. The state will also mandate that schools notify parents when children are restrained by educators or other school staff. State schools chief Brad Bryant said the policy -- developed over two years -- makes Georgia "one of the first states in the nation to step forward aggressively" on restraint and seclusion.
