The research must be in the picture for the first time in the future. “In order to have the right to stop,” says the researcher, Each of the Buckets.

“a Hundred years ago, it was the order of the day as well. The children were beaten up at the line, and were locked up in the closet. Since then, we have a long time nothing is heard of it. But in the here and now: it is now in the taboesfeer up to no good.” Each of the Buckets is at the head of a research group at the university unified communications (UC Leuven-Limburg, that for the first time, the phenomenon of the ” vrijheidsberovende action in the primary school will bring.

the Following are the worrying signs from the students at the teacher training college. According to the Buckets in the order of five to seventeen, young people who, during their internship in different primary schools, were witness to the most alarming practices. “We have heard the stories of children who have been strapped to a chair with duct tape or a belt,” she said. “The others should be a certain amount of time in a dark storage room or a janitor’s closet in the hallway. In the most humble of circumstances, as between the poetsproducten.” It’s going to be the children who are in the classroom, is constantly in trouble, or systematically for the teacher to disagree.

The schools are thinking more and more about what to do with such behavioural problems need to be addressed,” he said. “This is a global trend, as is the use of the methods that the child would not benefit from it. Children up or shut up is not the solution. It can be a angstcultuur to install the learning into the classroom to do the job. What does work, is to help children temporarily from the classroom removing them to cool a bit, and have a clear structure in the school to enter.”

According to the Buckets and to circulate it in some of the schools, and even internal memoranda regarding the use of restraints. “Some of our students who have seen it,” she says. “They are very secret and it is to be used in a committee or in a kernoverleg will be discussed. Parents or students who do not have to see it.” Under the Buckets are gone, schools are in a legal grey area because there are no rules about vrijheidsberovende measures in the mainstream education system. “In special education, which, however, due to the specific context of the time,” she says.

The UCLL are now going to examine how often the children are strapped down, or locked, by the surveys and in-depth interviews to take place in the school. “We also want to investigate what the teachers are, so far as it drives,” says Buckets. In a survey carried out by the domes, and the PUPILS will learn that they are no such signals are received. “I would certainly be surprised if the structure could be like this”, says Lieven Boeve, of the catholic education system.
