A Jacksonville school is accused of punishing special-needs students by putting them in a box made of drywall. The school administration knew about it, teachers used it.” Between August 2011 and June 2012, there were 304 instances of seclusion on 120 students – 70-percent of which have emotional-behavior disorders. CBS Miami reports the parents of a child with cerebral palsy are suing the school district, claiming hundreds of students were abused in the classroom and on school buses.
