Elite school in court over autism expulsion

A BRISBANE mother is fighting for her autistic son's right to an education in a landmark discrimination case.

This week single mum Sherri Gullickson, from Norman Park, lost her battle to have son Jonathan, 7, return to class at the elite Brisbane Boys College', which boasts it has several students in a state-of-the-art autism spectrum disorder program, the Courier Mail reports.

Jonathan began in Year 2 at the school in January but was expelled on August 29 for "biting and hitting" classmates in separate incidents on August 9 and August 14.

Ms Gullickson, described in court as being of "limited means", is continuing her fight, taking it to the Human Rights Commission in coming months, arguing her son is being denied his right to an education.
