A sixth grader, Nadia Roseboro, made the grades but was kept out of an honor roll ceremony because she's a special needs student. This is something that upset her mother.

“It hurt, it hurt a lot. It was insulting because my child worked as hard as she can and having a disability, you know, it's much harder for these children and they work hard.  They do the best that they can and they achieve just as well as the other children, but she couldn't get the recognition for it,” says Simone Roseboro, Nadia’s mother.

After the story aired, the Chesapeake school system told NewsChannel 3 that they are going to take a look at their policy.
