http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/03/1...-stands-tough-new-peanut-allergy-regulations/ Seriously - I think my husband is trying to make me stroke out. After *all* the garbage we've (scratch that, cuz he wasn't at the fun-filled mtgs) gone thru over the years with- our 2 sped kids, he hit me with this story last night, *agreeing* with- the complaining parents. Too bad, they have to wash their hands. Probably not a bad thing for all first graders regardless. I try to have empathy for the clueless parent who said that if his kid had a problem, he wouldn't expect everyone to "change their lives" (washing hands is changing lives????). Except you can be darn sure if his kid breaks a leg, he will expect accommodations. He should try getting a kid in a wheelchair in a public school (or public building) - I guarantee you, he will expect folks to "change their lives", i.e. making aisles wide enough to get through, doorways wide enough to get thru, etc. Needless to say, things got rather heated here in the slsh home last night as my *ridiculous* husband tried to convince me that these accommodations were excessive. I finally told him that I had obviously done him a huge disservice and contributed to his ongoing ignorance by not insisting he attend more IEP mtgs where we discussed the sorry state of FAPE in LRE. It's not FAPE in LRE when it's convenient and easy. GRRRRRR!!
