Marcie Sillman speaks with Calyn Holdaway, mother of three special needs students who have been physically restrained and isolated in Washington's public schools.

Also, we hear from Veronica Cook, a special education teacher in the Shoreline school district. 

Lawmakers say kids are physically restrained or isolated too often in public schools. A bill currently in front of the state legislature aims to address this issue by tightening regulations.
