From Business Insider: Parents Protest Against Girl With Peanut Allergy
Parents at a school in Florida (Via James Alday) are actively protesting and picketing because a young girl with peanut allergies has forced other kids to make certain accommodations for her allergy. They have to be especially assiduous about rinsing out their mouths, and washing their hands, for example.
The parents actually want her to LEAVE THE SCHOOL. They say it’s not fair that their children are having their educations impinged upon, because they have to spend time following the rules to protect the one girl.
I wonder if it would make a difference to these parents to understand that this is a disability issue. …Probably not. This kind of eyeroll-worthy short-sightedness is rarely put down by common sense.
