Safe Classes Bill Passes Oregon Senate

(Salem, OR)  --  A bill changing how teachers handle disruptive students is moving forward at the State Capitol after passing the Oregon Senate.  Senate Bill 963 would allow teachers to "physically assist" disruptive students to safety.  Under current state law, teachers can only touch a student if there is a "threat of imminent bodily injury to someone."  Teachers say the law has been interpreted to mean they can't touch students, no matter what.
