an insane reason to be forced out of school

Kelsey Harris of The Heritage Foundation wrote an article on September 9, 2014, entitled “The Insane Reason This Girl Was Forced Out of D.C. Public Schools” which told the following story:

Avery Gagliano — a piano prodigy and truant.

Yes, the 13-year-old musical genius, who was chosen to join 11 other musicians from around the world to play in Munich last year, playing this masterpiece…

… is also a truant in the eyes of the D.C. public school system.

Now Avery is forced to spend her eighth grade year as a homeschooler, and the Gaglianos aren’t happy:

“We decided to home-school her because of all the issues, because it was like a punch in the gut to have to face the fight again this year,” Galgiano told the Post.

Ironically, at the private Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart in Bethesda, student stars are praised for their winnings outside of school. Olympian swimmer Katie Ledecky has her own sidebar on the school’s website titled “Our Olympian Student” featuring her scores, photos, and story.

Avery’s parents can’t afford private school tuition.
