Uphill battle for CMC

Dear Editor:

Thank you for bringing to our attention Colorado Mountain College’s expulsion of a student for having seizures, ironically during EMT class.

The reprehensible act is both illegal and compounded by the school’s refusal to address numerous requests to explain their action. I encourage any individuals looking for a higher education to think twice about the lessons they will learn at CMC.

Another irony, should the school appeal the inevitable determination that they’ve broken the law all the way to the Supreme Court; it’s unlikely Chief Justice Stevens will be sensitive to whatever their argument might be. He too has epilepsy.

Despite having 20 seizures every month for 22 years, I’m fortunate to have a wonderful life. I hope the same opportunity for success is given to the young lady expelled from CMC.
