The Steel Valley, Pennsylvania, school board has rejected a request from the teachers union to bar a disabled student from using the faculty restroom. Officials at Park Elementary School had agreed that Kaitlin Montgomery, 10, could use the faculty restroom because the nearest student restroom is up a flight of stairs and the girl has trouble walking. But the Steel Valley Education Association filed a complaint, saying their contract calls for that restroom to be used only by school employees.
