Zachary Christie, 6, is to be reinstated in his first grade and record of his suspension is to be expunged, according to an article this morning in the New York Times.
No doubt that the public outcry from around the nation and the world woke up the Christina School District in Wilmington, Delaware, the district for Zach's school - Downes Elementary School in Newark, Delaware.
Go to www.helpzachary.com and read about this boy and his mother.
And read the New York Times' articles about Zach. Go to www.nytimes.com and search for "Zachary". Or you can read the current article (as of this writing) at http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/14/education/14discipline.html?_r=1&scp=5&sq=zachary&st=cse
This correct action occurred, in great part, because Zach's mother was savvy and unafraid of the school board. The web expertise and national publicity no doubt helped immensely. There was no way for the Christina School District to sweep Zach's case under the rug.
