Fox Topix – School Controversy

 Do you think it’s fair to dismiss a student because they’re not meeting academic standards because of a serious illness?

We recently told you about a girl, battling leukemia, who was dismissed from her Battle Creek Catholic school after failing to meet academic and attendance standards.

Because of her treatment schedule, the 12 year old has only attended 32 full days of school.

The school recently allowed her to return, but say they’re holding a meeting to discuss the situation later this week.

For today’s Fox Topix, we want to know – do you think it’s fair to dismiss a student if they’re not meeting academic or attendance standards due to a serious illness? Why or why not?
