NE Pa. mom protests deaf son's walk to bus stop

September 16, 2013

STROUDSBURG, Pa. (AP) — A northeastern Pennsylvania woman says her deaf son is being forced to walk along a treacherous road to the bus stop.

Crystal Alvarado of Stroud Township in Monroe County tells the Pocono Record (http://bit.ly/16ciiyE) that her 14-year-old son shouldn't be forced to walk along a road with no shoulder. She says it'll be even more dangerous in the winter.

The family lives in the Stroudsburg Area School District, but her son attends a school in Bethlehem. She says her previous school district provided door-to-door transportation.

Superintendent John Toleno says the district is trying to work with the family, but that because of construction in the area there's no way the bus can turn around safely near the boy's house.
