Committee Sets Hearing on Restraints, Seclusion

The U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on Education and Labor has scheduled a hearing May 19 on the topic of restraint and seclusion and students with disabilities.

Witnesses have yet to be announced, according to this notice of the hearing, but I would suspect that at least one representative will be from the National Disability Rights Network, which released a report in January on this issue.

I wonder if the timing of the hearing means that the General Accountability Office report on retraints and seclusion that I referenced in this recent article is soon to appear?
