A 6 year old girl in FL has a severe peanut allergy....it's so severe it is considered a disability. Her classmates must wash her hands before entering the classroom after lunch and rinse out their mouths. Parents are getting upset and say she should just be yanked from public school to be homeschooled instead.
I apologize if this has been asked before (I never saw it). How do you feel about this? Would it bother you that your children had to make sure their hands were clean to protect another student's well-being? Is it fair to tell them she needs to be homeschooled? What would you do if your child has the same allergy?

So the parents are opposed to good hygiene? My kids school has them wash after recess and lunch the kids are allowed to brush their teeth after lunch too. My daughter has a peanut allergy and the school isn't nut free so it is nice they have the kids practice good hygiene. The school has lower incidents of the illness since they started having the kids wash their hands more. Too bad these parents hate the fact their kids will be clean seems those kids have much bigger issues than a child with a nut allergy in their school.
