Why is it always such a battle with schools?

You would think the school would want to get this right as it seems to be really helping this boy.

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- If dog is man's best friend then Thor is Jacob's best friend. Jacob Saecker is 12 years old and suffers from Asperger's Syndrome, also known as high-functioning autism. Saecker is prone to angry outbursts and loosing his focus but his service dog Thor helps him stay calm and get work done.

The only problem is that after three days of Jacob and Thor going to Thorner Elementary together, the Bakersfield City School District said that Jacob's parents had to sign a written agreement before Thor could return back for a fourth day or any others.

The BCSD is required by the state education code to approve all animal services that would be on any of their campuses. They say that Thor will be free to return with Jacob to school once his parents sign a written agreement. However, Kristi Saecker says that agreement is full of inaccuracies and there was no way that they were going to sign it and they haven't as of Friday morning.

i got that today in a bip mtg and i thru back at them that idea says each child is to be treated as an individual based on their needs.

isn't that why it is called Special Education?
