Let's take a trip to Patriot Valley HS (Jurupa Valley) where an IE mom got wind that her special needs son was digging in the trash cans at school to raise funds for a special needs program.


Now, what may seem innocent, could actually be the opposite, as one IE mom pointed out "The shame and embarrassment for the children, it hurts." (via CBSLocal.com)


My take: These kids have special needs, and are already fighting an uphill battle in their lives, couldn't we do the kind thing and have 2 separate bins? One for trash and the other for recycling? and THAT way the other kids could DONATE their recyclable items to HELP the special needs kids and their program? 


How would you have handled this? Are you going through something similar at your school?
