Media opportunity: disability discrimination in schools

"One of our contacts has had a call from a 16 year old boy who is blind, who told us that he and other disabled pupils at a residential school he previously attended were not allowed to take their meals in the school canteen on the basis of health and safety. 

We are keen to discover how far this experience might be replicated elsewhere – and to what extent disabled pupils might not be allowed to take part in any other regular parts of school life on the basis of health and safety".

Do you think this is fair? Do you have any related experiences you'd like to share?

    As an ex-employee and multiple job applicant I can say that they are as bad as the worst private companies for discrimination. They do not have any sense of ethics.
    Expediency is the watchword.
