My Life After Leaving College

Being forced to leave university was very painful. My university adopted Alberta’s Restriction Exemption Program. None of the options given to allow me to continue my education were suitable. That left Academic Leave as my only choice. 

Students with Disabilities Need the Least Restrictive Environment

More than other members of society, children are at a critical phase in development, with their well-being largely dependent on the good judgement of the adults around them.

Dear Stanford: I Will Not Spend Another Semester Locked Down

I am 31 years old, and I do not want to feel like I am being monitored and punished like a teenager for making my own decisions about how to live my life.
