Long story short… a teenager boy in NY has not been allowed to bring his hearing assistance dog into school. Many may have heard the story, or seen it on CNN or some other show. Here’s one link: http://wcbstv.com/topstories/local_story_008053726.html
This should have been a “no-brainer” for the school system officials. They should know they have no legal standing, at all. Other than the legal issues, what about public relations? Everyone knows you don’t mess with kids and puppies.
The only reply that I have seen from the school system officials said something about a “process” not being followed. In other words, our lawyer told us to keep quiet until we can figure out a way out of this fiasco.
What were they thinking? Well, I don’t believe they were thinking at all.
