NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A group of Tennessee parents says the public schools are mistreating their disabled children, and they’re

asking a federal judge to intervene. The parents’ complaints run the gamut from segregation, to overuse of isolations and restraints,

to physical abuse. The lawsuits involve different school districts, but they all name the state Education Department as a defendant.

The parents hope the judge will order the department to hold the districts accountable.
