Chrystal Johnson started this petition to Senator Ted Cruz and


I wanted to bring attention the desperate need to address the children in the state of Texas. My daughter has ADHD. I have been coming into road blocks in getting her the services that she needs. I had to quit my job because the staff is not equipped to handle my daughters disorder. I have been called to the school on several occasion which prevented me from accomplishing my job as a CPS Caseworker. I have looked into a different school and was informed by the superintendents office that there is NO public school that educated and equips their school personnel about ADHD and many other disorders. I feel this is creating a huge disadvantage for our children and their future. The education should be changing with the times and technology. There have been an increase of children diagnosed with a special need. There have been no changes implemented to reflect that. Instead, I was informed to send my daughter to an alternative school who is only in the first grade. I conducted some research on the school and all the “bad children” are sent there. The children being placed in these schools have mental disorders that the teachers are unable address. This action by the school gets rid of their “problem”, increasing their grade for the school report card which gives them more grants. The alternative school has an increased rate of school drop out and the children who attend are unlikely to graduate. What message are we trying to communicate to our youth? Please offer some assistance on how I can bring awareness to this issue. If I don’t have the assistance of Congress I WILL continue to fight for the rights of my daughter and other students!
