Are Learning Disability Students Being Discriminated Against in Car Insurance Rates?

It is the time of year when grades come out and students who meet certain grade point criteria can get a break on their car insurance premiums.

The trouble is that students with learning disabilities can often fall short of that criteria. In many cases they work as hard if not harder than the unblemished academics.

Students earning credit under IEP programs should get reviewed by the IEP team to be awarded a merit designation for preferred car insurance rates. Academic grades do not tell the whole story.
