  Case: Always late
For the third time, a Jeremy arrives to your classroom late (he is in a wheelchair). Your syllabus specifies a reduction in points for repeated tardiness. You feel bad because you do not know if the reason he is late is because of the wheelchair and you don't want to discriminate him just because he is disabled. What should your course of action be?
