MORE DISCRIMINATION BY ROBERT BOBB TOWARDS DETROIT'S SPECIAL EDUCATION STUDENTS

THIS IS THE LETTER THAT SOME DETROIT PARENTS RECEIVED THIS EVENING FROM OUR SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN. EMERGENCY FINANCIAL MANAGER ROBERT BOBB IS COMMITTING MORE DISCRIMINATION AGAINST OUR SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN. CALL YOUR STATE REPS AND LEGISLATORS IN MICHIGAN AND WASHINGTON DC. SAY NO! TO DISCRIMINATION AGAINST DETROIT, MICHIGAN'S SPECIAL EDUCATION STUDENTS!


ATTENTION
ALL PARENTS, CONCERNED CITIZENS AND EMPLOYEES


AH concerned Parents, Citizens, and Employees. The School District of the City of Detroit thru its Financial Manager, Robert Bobb has decided to eliminate Bus Attendant Service
for the 5000 Special Needs Students of the School District. The District is stating that out of the 5000 medically Wheel Chair Bound, Autistic, Severely Mentally Impaired, Severely
Physically Impaired, Emotionally Mentally Impaired, Hearing Impaired, Visually Impaired and Learning Disabled only 93 out of 5000 Special Needs Students are eligible to receive a Bus Attendant. This is an absolute outrage to put over 5000 Special Needs
Students and Staff in danger because of a budget deficit. We call on all Concerned Parents, Citizens and Employees to contact the following People and request Bus Attendants be placed in the IEP reports for all Special Needs Students that require Bus
Attendant assistance and that Bus Attendants Service be restored immediately for the safe transportation of the Detroit Public School Special Needs Students.

1. Why would you take away a direct service to Special Needs Students.
2. I will file a lawsuit against Detroit Public School if the Bus Attendants are laid-off and my child is injured on the bus.
3. Bus drivers are refusing to take Special Education Routes oift without a Bus Attendant.
4. If Bus Attendants are laid-off Parent Groups will file lawsuits on behalf of thestudents due to safety concerns and large numbers of Special Education Students that are transported on a daily basis (over 7000 Special Education Students).
