Rep. Bailey calls isolation rooms in schools “medieval”

Isolation rooms in schools will get a close look from state lawmakers next year. Rep. Dottie Bailey has filed a bill pushing for limits on seclusion and restraint.

“It’s medieval. It looks like a dungeon,” Bailey says. “It’s really insane.”

Parents complained about the use of isolation rooms at a recent Columbia Public Schools board meeting. Illinois put an emergency ban on isolation rooms in its schools.
