Aspen, Colo. (AP) -- Colorado Mountain College officials say they
expect to complete their investigation into a discrimination
complaint by mid-November. Channing Seideman, who has epilepsy, filed the complaint accusing faculty members of mishandling a seizure she had during class at the Aspen campus. Her complaint says that after her second seizure in three semesters, the college emailed her that the incidents were reaching a point where it could ask her to drop classes. Her complaint asked that three faculty members be placed on leave while an investigation takes place. Colorado Mountain College officials say privacy laws limit what
they can say about the complaint. The Aspen Times reports
the school has released a statement saying it has a strong commitment to providing equal educational opportunities to all students.

    Are you people for real? Just because someone has epilepsy does not mean they should be banned from COLLEGE! They are paying for their education just like everyone else! WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? JUDGING? Just because someone does not own their home does not mean YOU are supporting their children! WHEN DID YOU BECOME GOD? I am so glad that YOU HAVE MADE YOURSELF JUDGE AND JURY! Man, I certainly hope you are independently wealthy, have an unending supply of money and never EVER have a health issue for the rest of YOUR LIFE! For the rest of us, WE LIVE IN THE REAL WORLD!

    I do not see the issue here. The students or their parents pay for the education. Why should their education be infringed upon by someone with epilepsy.

      I pay for poor non-home owners children to get free school and meals. So let's start with that.
