Expelled autistic boy hasn't been to school in seven weeks

From Morning Report, 7:48 am on 25 May 2021

An autistic boy who was expelled despite appealing to the Children's Commissioner has now been out of school for seven weeks.

His mother says she is hoping the Education Ministry will tell her this morning which schools might take her son.

She says the process for finding somewhere for children who have been excluded or expelled takes too long.
