Alf wishes good luck to the school that is going to court to fight to keep a child with Asperger’s “out of the classroom”.
He is not too sure, however, that the school’s aims have been accurately reported by the Herald on Sunday.
The school authorities probably are hoping to keep the child (if that’s the right word) out of their classrooms and not necessarily out of all classrooms.
The student in question did get involved in a scuffle with a teacher, after all, and the school board should have the welfare of teachers in mind as well as that of the kids.
But inevitably outfits like the Human Rights Commission will have other ideas and it seems we have appointed some bloke to be a Disabilities Commissioner at some time and he wants a slice of the judicial action too.
We can be sure he doesn’t much intend to ensure teachers aren’t mauled by the brats in their charge if the brats suffer from any form of disability .
