2d Cir Upholds New York's Ban on Subversive Techniques In Special Education


Bryant v. NYS Education Dep't., ___F.3d___(2d Cir. Aug. 20, 2012).  Download Bryant

Subversive techniques are a form of punishment designed to induce appropriate behavior. They are very controversial, to say the least, and not used in most main stream programs. New York has taken the lead and outlawed them altogether. 

In this decision, the 2d Circuit upholds the New York regulation which ban it.
