Children Are Routinely Isolated In Some Fairfax County Schools. The District Didn’t Report It.

For years, Fairfax County Public Schools reported to the federal government that not a single student was physically restrained or trapped in an isolating space.

But documents obtained by WAMU reveal hundreds of cases where children, some as young as 6 years old, were restrained or put in seclusion multiple times. In some cases, a single child was confined to a room almost 100 times in a school year.
