LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- While most of the rallies these days are focused on presidential candidates, a different kind of rally took place Wednesday on the State Capitol lawn. Parents, lawmakers and advocates gathered to raise awareness for the needs of special education students.
A recent package of bills banning the use of restraint and seclusion in classrooms except in cases of an emergency is making its way through the legislature. This legislation came from a recommendation by the Special Education Reform Task Force. Lt. Governor Brain Calley is the chair of the taskforce.
