An Inclusive Litany

9/4/01

In Plant City, Florida, a six-year-old elementary school student suffered only a minor bruise after a .22-caliber revolver that was hidden in his pocket discharged. The boy was suspended for at least ten days, but as a special-needs student protected by the Americans with Disability Act, he will not be expelled from school under the school's standard zero-tolerance weapons policies.
