The title of a post last week referred to Section 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act as the "red-headed stepchildren" of special education law.
I have received a few complaints from stepchildren saying that this language was offensive. I'm sorry.
I thought the phrase. Was a good metaphor for the forgotten and neglected. My operating premise was that step kids are discriminated against as a group. I must admit that my research consisted only of my faint memory of the Cinderella story.
In any event, I apologize if I hurt anybody's feelings.
Oh, by the way ... I also really love redheads! Sent from my BlackBerry wireless device from U.S. Cellular
