Lacey-Jai Stokes, 7, has brachial palsy and recently had surgery that required doctors to break her collarbone and shoulder. When she went back to school at England's Smiths Wood Primary Academy, her mother had to modify some of her clothes to accommodate her body cast. But when they got to school, officials told her the girl was out of uniform and made her take her daughter home.
