    The Special Education Principals' Association says unruly students are a tiny minority, but the level of violence is on the rise

    The Special Education Principals' Association says unruly students are a tiny minority, but the level of violence is on the rise


    New figures show children are being restrained an average of 13 times a day in New Zealand classrooms.

    The country's special schools account for nearly a quarter of the restraints.

    Special Education Principals' Association president Judith Nel says a small number of children are creating the chaos.

    She says students need different support structures when they get to school, as children aren't being given the same guidelines at home as they used to.

    Nel says classrooms are also not set up well for autistic children - particularly open, noisy, multi-teacher spaces.

    She adds teachers are no longer trained to cope with such behaviours.
