Father Questions Disabled Son's Good Grades

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — The father of a severely disabled Gwinnett high school student is questioning the district's curriculum and grading policy.

Although Wes DeWeese's 18-year-old son, Jared, cannot speak words, walk, read or write, he received outstanding scores in courses including algebra, biology and world history.

"My wife and I were pretty astounded. Glad he's getting 90s and 100s. But he can't do any of these. He has the mental capacity of a 6-month-old,"  DeWeese said.
