Blind Students Must Pass Driver's Ed

Logic isn't always a part of the package when it comes to people who make rules. Chicago schools are requiring blind students to pass a driver's ed course in order to graduate. "Visually impaired sophomores in Chicago schools are required to pass a written rules-of-the-road exam in order to graduate — a rule they say takes time away from subjects they might actually use," an AP article reported.

My question... what the heck were these officials thinking? It's illogical and absurd to have a requirement like this. Why don't people, myself often included, think before we do things? To read the full article click here.

Well you know how we have to provide equal treatment to everyperson wether or not they will benefit or harm any specific institution. For example, In New York they were testing these public toilets. Yet because we must have equal treatment, they had to provide handicap capable public toilets, these cost so much more and were so unused by the handicapped population that they had to drop the whole thing. And by the way, why is there brail on a drive-through ATM?
