Second grader in wheelchair set apart from classmates in school photo

Class photos usually end up on the family fridge, but the snapshot Anne Belanger received of her sonís Grade 2 class in New Westminster, B.C. went straight back into the envelope in which it arrived.

The mother of Miles Ambridge was heartbroken to see that her seven-year-old boy, who has spinal muscular atrophy and, as a result, must use a wheelchair, had been placed, chair and all, far off to the side from the rest of his classmates.

2. looked thoughtless, not intended. they should have ditched the bleachers and

arranged chairs around him. unfortunate but it does not look to me that there was malice.
