All Kids Included

This petition had 1,531 supporters


My name is Amanda Dunn. I am a fifth grader in Keith Elementary in the Walled Lake School District in Michigan. There are students that are being kicked out of school because they have special needs. The district thinks that because they are different they have to go to a special class in a different school. My friends and I think that there is no reason to kick them out because they have special needs. I have a brother that has Down Syndrome and when he was going into kindergarten, they wanted to kick him out of Keith because he is different, but my parents hired an advocate, which is a person who fights for laws and people. Finally they let him stay. He loves being included at our school and everyone loves having him there. The same thing is happening to a boy named Adam. He has a disability were it is hard for him to speak words correctly. Another girl named Fiona was forced out too. You can see their picture with this post. They are just two of five kindergarten and first grade students that have been kicked out of our school this year, so that's why we made this petition. Their families are fighting really hard and we want to help them. If you think what I think then sign this petition. HELP KIDS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS STAY AT THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL. #seperateisnotequal
