RANDOLPH - A 16-year-old who is a part-time student at the County College of Morris says that a teacher sent an email asking him to reserve his comments due to his severe stutter.

Philip Garber, Jr. has a severe stuttering challenge. When he's nervous, the stutter is more severe.

The 16-year-old is enrolled in his first semester through the Challenger program, which allows high school students to attend part-time.
