Down syndrome fight: Dad fights school district to gain access for his son

Fox News recently posted this article about a dad having to fight for his son to attend a local public school.  His son, who is a 12 year old child with Down’s, was preparing to start middle school.  The school refused his enrollment without given any explanation.  His son has developed friendships and the family would like for him to continue on with his classmates.

“I believe it’s administrative expedience,” Killoran told FoxNews.com. “They don’t want the hassle of dealing with a student with special needs.”

The district’s school year begins Wednesday, and while Aiden may not be in class, his father vowed to be outside the school on the public sidewalk to bring attention to the issue. He said he has no intention of disrupting the students at the school, but wants to be heard.
