Perhaps you didn’t know… Schools across the country are literally building solitary confinement cells for children.

What is “nor­mal”? Is nor­mal­cy a con­di­tion of pub­lic accep­tance to com­mon trends & cul­ture? Per it’s def­i­n­i­tion, nor­mal is defined as con­form­ing to a stan­dard: usu­al, typ­i­cal or expected.

If you accept nor­mal­cy by that def­i­n­i­tion then…

-it is nor­mal for kids in our pub­lic school sys­tem to be locked in soli­tary con­fine­ment (4×4 padded cell) for misbehavior.

-it is nor­mal for each state across the nation to have tens of thou­sands of cas­es of stu­dents being phys­i­cal­ly restrained. In some cas­es, even shack­led using hand and ankle cuffs.

-it is nor­mal for our police state to inter­vene with trou­ble­some kids with use of phys­i­cal beat­ings and pep­per spray.

Perhaps you didn’t know…

Schools across the coun­try are lit­er­al­ly build­ing soli­tary con­fine­ment cells for chil­dren. They are very small, some­times padded and have win­dow­less walls with no con­tact to oth­er children.


The use of these “seclu­sion rooms” and oth­er restraints are being deployed almost 270,000 times in a nor­mal school year across the nation!!!! In 163,000 of those cas­es, chil­dren were phys­i­cal­ly restrained. In about 7,300 cas­es, mechan­i­cal restraints such as hand­cuffs, ankle shack­les or oth­er devices are used. God knows how long kids are actu­al­ly kept in these cells?!

Take this one instance of a first grad­er who suf­fered wrist bruis­ing after he was hand­cuffed for run­ning away from school.hqdefault

Or how about this instance where an autis­tic boy was afraid and refused to go into his “seclu­sion room” cell. The school offi­cials were so vio­lent with try­ing to get him into the cell that they smashed his hand in the door. His hand was sub­se­quent­ly broken.


Or what about this school offi­cer that beats 13 year old stu­dents for ques­tion­ing where they were head­ed dur­ing class change? This offi­cer beat the chil­dren with her night stick and pep­per sprayed oth­ers. After the inci­dent,  the school said the inci­dent was han­dled appro­pri­ate­ly… Fur­ther­more, while the one child who was beat­en was bleed­ing pro­fuse­ly from the head, the par­ents were not noti­fied by the school.

You do not need the police to be in the police state. Oth­er author­i­ty fig­ures such as school admin­is­tra­tion offi­cials, secu­ri­ty guards, or even your own doc­tor (e.g. – vac­ci­na­tions or med­ical advice) are serv­ing to enforce the total­i­tar­i­an state. Not only do we need to wor­ry about phys­i­cal and psy­cho­log­i­cal abuse of our chil­dren at school, we also have to won­der what com­mon core is teach­ing them. With all these mon­stroc­i­ties com­ing down on our chil­dren, it is no won­der that the num­ber of chil­dren home schooled between the year 2000 to 2012 has dou­bled! As par­ents, we must take a hard look at our schools, how they are being run, and the tac­tics they use. If it is as bad as these trends indi­cate, you might want to con­sid­er home school­ing for the well being of your child.
