Playground Investigation: Tuesday at 11

Posted: Updated:

Is each student considered equal?

One local father says, "No".  His daughter was born without shinbones, had a double amputation and uses a wheelchair. 

This father reached out to WBTV's Molly Grantham because he says his daughter, Maddie, came home with bloody hands and arms after being told to crawl on woodchips at recess in the public school playground. 

He maintains it breaks federal law as dictated by The American Disabilities Act.

"I just want the schools to be compliant," he says.  "I want all kids, even those with disabilities, to be considered equal."

But the school has a different story.

What is appropriate for children of all levels?  We investigate and get answers.  Tuesday, at 11pm.
