My son's school is not allowing him to go on field trip and told me it was a matter of safety. The truth is that he is ADHD and there isn't enough adults to children and the school thinks this will be unsafe for him, due to his inability to control himself. which is caused by his disability. The teacher decided he would not be able to go if he got 3 red cards. She ultimately determines the card color, this seems like a covenant way to make sure he is not eligible. Then the school can turn around and say the field trip is a privilege he didn't earn. Does anyone else think this is discrimination? Or maybe a financial issue? Shouldn't it be the schools responsibility to insure safety for all the children including the ones with disabilities? I don't know what to do? my only point is that this seems to be illegal under no child left behind act, IDEA and section 504. any advise guys?
