You have been warned-if you or your child has a disability they will be picked on. I'm a Type 1 Diabetic 6th grader and have been teased for years about food etc. I wish I could go somewhere else but I can't. I'd miss my (What, 5?) good friends there and my teachers. Most of the teachers are good but not all.
