Sarah, a student with disabilities, was 12 years old when she was being bullied and taunted by students who said she smelled. When she sprayed perfume on her neck, Sarah was taken out of class, suspended and charged with a criminal misdemeanor.
Stories like Sarah's happen far too often. In the US, students with disabilities are nearly TWICE as likely to be suspended as their peers without disabilities.
