Officials at Patriot Valley High School announced Wednesday that they’ve suspended the program in response to the backlash.
“The shame and the embarrassment for the children, it hurts,” said Carmen Wells, who complained to the Jurupa Unified School District on Tuesday. She said her son, Marcus, came home upset from his first day back at school because he was told to put on gloves and dig through the trash, alongside other studentswith special needs.
She said she couldn’t believe her ears.
