Students with disabilities illegally removed from school

Although federal law requires public schools to teach students with disabilities, they are sometimes secretly removed (“How Educators Secretly Remove Students With Disabilities From School,” The New York Times, Feb. 10). They do so because these students often disrupt the classroom.

Schools get away with the practice because they are not required to report them in the same manner as formal suspensions and expulsions. As a result, there’s no way to know exactly how common the practice is. But one thing is certain: These informal removals leave such students adrift.
