Zero Tolerance for Kids with Cancer

Here’s a column about a seventh-grader with Hodgkin’s lymphoma who was excluded from school in Montgomery County, Maryland because the school system was afraid that his chemo pack might jeopardize “the health and welfare of Jonathan and his fellow students”. Never mind that the NIH said that there was no such danger, of course.

He’s back in school now; his family hired a lawyer, which seems to only way to get anything done in this country any more.

The column has some more interesting things to say about zero-tolerance the the recent idiocy of school systems, though.
