Kindergartner with Autism Not Allowed to Participate in Graduation Ceremony

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Dickerson Elementary School has a special needs program and Anthony Betts, a six year old kindergardener, is one of these children. His mother Ebony Betts spoke out when she found out there would be no graduation ceremony for her son or his classmates.The Grand Rapids Public Schools (GRPS) decided it would be in the best interest of the special needs class not to attend the ceremony. There rational is that the ceremony is large, loud and can be overwhelming for those with an autism disorder.
