Superintendent Larry Glaze says pit bulls are aggressive and shouldn't be in the schools.
The president of the local humane association says that's dog discrimination — arguing that an individual animal shouldn't be judged by its breed.
The blue nose pit bull is owned by an animal control deputy, who says it has been gentle and well behaved.
The decision could mean the end of the bite-safety courses sponsored by the animal shelter and conducted with animal control officers.
