Time out room. Say you have a spec ed classroom with violent, explosive,(emotionally & socially disturbed kids) that are a danger to all the kids. Kids that when they get upset, attack other children, throw desks, swear, urinate in classroom and on other kids, ect ect. When they won't stop fighting and attempting to hurt other kids and teachers; they go in the time out room, (padded walls & floor). Usually they continue to kick & scream, then start swearing, then after some time start crying, then start begging the teacher to talk to them and let them be with the other kids who are terrified of the violent child. Teacher then enters room and trys to reason with the child and why they can't act in this manner.
You all should respect what many spec ed teachers go through, attempting to educate these basket case kids; we have to make a place for them to be successful in our greater society or build more prisons. Look first at the kid's family and you will see abuse, drugs, mental illness, and an environment kids should never experience. My wife has come home with black eyes, bite marks, bruises, and blk & blue marks from grade school kids. More to all of this than most believe.

I appreciate that dealing with the extremes is a trial. I couldn’t do it.
My only opinion is that most of even the mildly challenged shouldn’t be mainstreamed with normal schoolchildren who have some chance of learning something useful. Kids only get one shot at an education, and anyone and anything that distracts from that should be removed, and I include discipline cases in that, too.
