Was it discrimination or oversight?
Anne Belanger of British Columbia was incensed when she received her son’s class photo.
Though her second grader, Miles Ambridge, was beaming a smile with the rest of his classmates, he was positioned a few feet away from everyone else. Miles uses a wheelchair and is seen in the picture leaning toward the rest of the kids, who are seated on school bleachers.
