Tough Discipline


Courtney Glowczewski has a withered arm and leg due to cerebral palsy. Unfortunately, that has made her a target for harassment by some students at Denver's Martin Luther King Middle School. She's been taunted, threatened and even had a knife pulled on her. But she says the school never responded to her complaints. Finally, after another student set her hair on fire, the school acted. It told Courtney not to come back for the rest of the year. Her alleged attacker is still at school. Administrators confirmed to a local TV station that the boy had a knife, but the school did not call police.
