Petition Closed

My 12 year old son was expelled from his school for refusing to take the state standardized test! He is 12 years old with Aspergers and type 1 diabetes!

My child had a letter from his endocrinology team not only excusing him from the testing, but explaining why. It was ignored by his school here in South Carolina.

After taking a 30 minute part of the PASS (Palmetto Assessment of State Standards) his blood sugar rose over 200 points and a great deal of pain!

Now because I won't put my son in jeopardy again, he has been expelled!!

Please let the SC government officials know that their schools value their scores over a child's health! 

Please help me send this message! 

Thank you so much!
