First Graders ‘Handcuffed’ For Talking In Class


The attorney for a family suing Chicago Public Schools over the alleged handcuffing of a first-grader in 2010 said Tuesday that the boy was among several 6- and 7-year-olds who were detained and handcuffed for hours for talking in class. I cannot even believe this is true, but it is. What do you think about this?

In an email to a local newspaper, attorney Michael Carin said school officials at Carver Primary School on the Far South Side authorized the on-campus security guard in March 2010 to discipline some first-graders who were being disruptive.

Is there any circumstance where it’s OK to handcuff students??
