I think that these kids who were suspended knew what they were doing better than the school officials. They were administering inhalers, not injecting epinephrine. I think a sit down conference with the students involved,their parents, the medical staff at the school and the school administration to review the situation is what should have occurred.

That is CRAZY! They need to give epipens for anaphlaxis and follow medical protocol!!! Anything less is negligence that could result in death.
