THE ISSUE:

The Maryland Disabilities Law Center has field a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Baltimore on behalf of Atholton High School athlete Tatyana McFadden, who uses a wheelchair, to allow her to race simultaneously with nondisabled athletes during high school track and field meets in Howard County. McFadden, born paralyzed from the waist down, is allowed to compete in her team's practices, but the school system requires the sophomore to participate in separate races during official events. Should McFadden be allowed to race with the other athletes?
