Many of you have heard the story of Wendy Walton; the mother of an autistic teen (Spencer) both of whom live in Smyrna, Tennessee.
Walton was charged on April 11, 2016 with truancy for removing her autistic son from Stewarts Creek High School, claiming abuse.
"The law says Spencer is afforded a free education which includes a safe educational environment," said Walton.
The Smyrna mother has a court date concerning the child with special needs in a Rutherford County Juvenile Courtroom on Thursday.
Spencer is a special needs student who is autistic. The 17 year old has Cerebral Palsy and a seizure disorder. Evidently the mother took him out of school because he kept telling her that he got hurt in school.
The mother said that she went to the school to discuss the problem first, but nothing was done. Therefore, she took him out of school with plans to enroll him elsewhere next year.
