Aspen, Colo. (AP) -- A junior college is warning a student with
epilepsy that her seizures are becoming disruptive and she could be
forced to drop classes. Aspen resident Channing Seideman filed a complaint against Colorado Mountain College after she had two seizures on campus. The college sent her an email that said the incidents have reached a point where the school is allowed to ask a student to drop classes. According to the Aspen Times, officials defended their actions and refused further comment.

    Aspen doesn't want disabled, handicapped 'imperfect' people in their college and Boulder is complaining about a homeless shelter in their neighborhood..... now we are seeing more of the real liberal/left attitude. Hypocrites!

    Really!!! Lets ask God to change the color of the sky or ask medical science to cure AIDS none of these will ever happen and why should this student be forced to give up on a dream that she worked so hard for to get to College and make something of her self. Please do not stop this young lady from trying to live a normal life and give her the chance to succeed

    FIRST OF ALL THATS NOT VERY AMERICAN LIKE. HES SUPPOSE TO BE AN EDUCATOR AND TEACH ALL WHO ENTERS HIS CLASS. AND MOST OF ALL I BELIEVE HIS EDUCATION LIENCE SHOULD BE PULLED TO NEVER TEACH AGAIN. HE HAS A DESCRIMATION AGAINST PEOPLE WHO HAVE A MEDICAL ISSUE. AGAIN THATS NOT VERY AMERICAN OF HIM. SHAME ON THAT EDUCATOR.

    In a town that's so liberal that half of them don't vote because they expect to govt to do that for them, this is reprehensible. I thought the libs were supposed be all touchy-feely and act on emotion instead of logic. Even park outhouses have to be handicapped accessible and CMC is telling her to go away because of a genetic condition? The admin of CMC had better start kissing up to her because after the lawsuit she's going to own CMC and will can a few admin folks to pay for her education at Harvard or Yale. I hope her lawyer nails the college right to the wall.
