'Scream room' in school causing concerns

MIDDLETON, CT (WFLX) - An elementary school in Connecticut is under investigation for possible abuse concerns.

Parents are saying the school has what they call "scream rooms" -- places where students with behavior problems are sent to calm down.

The issue with these rooms, parents say, is the kids inside can hurt themselves, and students nearby who hear the noise come home terrified.

The school says they have revised its plan on how to deal with behavioral problems.
