Are public schools required to allow Autistic children to remain in their school even if the child is a physical threat to the other children
"lock down" because he is in the hall screaming profanity and physically attacking anyone who is nearby. My children as well as many other children are scared to go to school and parents are very upset because this enviroment is not conducive to learning. We have been told by the administration that he is protected by the Disabilities Act and that unless he does serious physical harm to someone or brings a weapon to school that the situation will remain the same. Although I am very sympathetic to this child and his family I am not willing to let my child be the one serious harm is done to.
