Principal Denies Young Woman's Hard-fought Right to Graduation Walk

If you've read this blog for awhile, you know that two of the things that really tick me off are idiotic public school officials and lawyers. Here's a great example: A girl who'd been paralyzed in a car wreck in 1999 worked for two years to realize her dream of walking across the stage at her graduation commencement.

When the time finally came and she was ready to do it - using her walker - the principal pulled the plug on the idea, citing concern for her safety. Sounds more like he was just scared she'd fall and the school would get sued, even though she'd offered to sign off on liability if anything happened.
