The California Department of Education has suspended the certification of a private El Dorado Hills school where a teen with autism stopped breathing after being restrained by staff.
The 13-year-old student subsequently died.
The state agency announced late last week that it was investigating the circumstances around the fatal incident on Nov. 28 at Guiding Hands School.
