>Starting tomorrow, we will be home-schooling our youngest until which time we can get the public school in our district to accept him and his disabilities.
Anyone know anybody associated with the ACLU? How about the NAACP?
The reason I ask, is because my son’s civil rights have been violated. He is diagnosed with a number of very specific mental and emotional disorders, and he just happens to be African-American. Why is that an issue or should it be an issue? He is the only African-American in his school that I know of. While I can’t say for certain that they are discriminating against him because of his race, I know that they are discriminating against him because of his disabilities.
Even after they accept him back in the district, either by legal mandate or their own volition, how can we guarantee that he will be given the opportunity to succeed or fail on his own merits. How do we guarantee that they won’t sabotage him just to get him out of the building?
If you know of someone who could help our case, please leave a comment and let me know. I will be in touch.
