U.S. public schools routinely isolate and physically restrain disabled students deemed to have misbehaved or become uncooperative, according to a new report released on Thursday.
Analysis of Department of Education data by NPR and news website ProPublica found that public schools restrained or secluded students more than 267,000 times in the 2012 school year. Figures also indicate that around 75 percent of the students who were restrained had physical, emotional or intellectual disabilities.

If you speak-speak out of love.
If you warn someone about something-warn them out of love.
If you forgive-forgive out of love.
…Let the internal root of everything be love, from this root only good can grow.
