If there's another side to this story, it had better be good.

Refusing a kid his inhaler because paperwork wasn't done?!

Incredible! Was she actually prepared to just stand there and watch this child die? How can anyone - let alone a nurse - do that?

School gives its side and the spokeswoman actually suggests the student should have asked for 911 to be called. Uh, he's in an asthma attack, not breathing well. Might someone else think of that?

The school confiscated his asthma medication. He was self-carrying, that's why it wasn't on the medication form! Because at his age, his parents felt he should normally be able to manage taking his medication as required. The school confiscated the medication and did not inform the parents of this. Had they known, they most likely would have completed the necessary paperwork.

When are schools going to let students self-carry life saving medications? What can you possibly do with an asthma inhaler that justifies confiscation? Enough with zero tolerance, it's time schools THINK about what they're doing! :verymad
