Missouri: Bans Using Seclusion to Confine a Student (HB 1677)
Missouri HB 1677 would prohibit the use of seclusion on any student in Missouri schools. Although the majority of Missouri schools do not use seclusion, data from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education revealed that students were secluded in solitary confinement over 8,000 times during the last school year. This bill would ensure that all Missouri students receive critical protection from this ineffective and harmful practice.
