School is back in session, but a 7-year old Fall River boy isn't going. His mother says it's because he has no safe way to get there. Kadin Gonzales' mom says the boy's respiratory problems are so bad that he has to take medicine every 4 hours using a nebulizer. His family moved from Rhode Island to Fall River last year. At that time, his mom says he easily transitioned into his new school, which was only 2 blocks away from their new home.
But this year, that school closed and he was reassigned farther away. And it's that distance that's got his mom taking on the school district.
