Please Help My Son!

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!
