The education of a child is the essence of a golden future.
Each child deserves a proper education in a respectful school environment.
It isn’t right that a child must be raised up in a school/class that they do not belong in because of having a disability.
Being disabled does not make one incompetent, but they are treated as such.
The blind are placed with the hearing impaired, the hyper active with the in-active, the violent with the humble, Adults with minors, the “learning disabled” with the intellectually advanced, etc.
Even the teachers have disabilities and many of them lack the skills to be Teachers. Yet here they are, teaching.

I've shut down this program in 1999.
But it was a mere wound to this beast.
It is still active in other Schools as well as the one I attended.

A strong investigation must take place within these classrooms.
There are teachers who have students play more than they learn and some even smoke in class (as depicted in the drawing).
The teachers feel that the student is too dumb to comprehend the wrongs of their (the Teachers) actions, while other teachers even play Learning Musical Cossets as a teaching recourse instead of doing their JOB as a Teacher.
There are students who become spoiled by the teachers (even babied), students who are allowed to pass even after failing, and students who fail simply because of being disliked by a teacher (for various reasons).
Be aware that during the visitation(s) by a Parent, Staff or higher authority the Teacher would place the illusion of a working environment prior to each visit to prevent themselves from ever getting caught.
Not all Teachers are “Overpriced Babysitters” but the majority are.
The IEP Diploma is a waste of a student’s years in School simply because it does not equate to the value of a real Diploma or a GED.
You’re talking about leaving a student to stay in School till the age of 21 (or higher), for a Diploma that can’t even get them a Job at Mac Donald’s.
The IEP is the equivalent of a contract “your path is set for you”, and just like a contract there's that fine print that is never easy to notice (when it comes to a parents eyes).
When students go to Collage with an IEP they still have to face being only acceptable to the few classes that take them in. And there is no justice for a student in that.

So I implore you for the sake of a Special Education Student (who could even be your child) to participate in this petition to have the Board of Education no longer allow this to accrue, for it damages the future of a great youth.

      I grew up being called a retard everywhere I went.
      I've noticed how the cafeteria's were full of tables divided by Races. Looked at our table and and saw that we had multiple races. At first I was proud because we could ignore such minor things people make major...Then it hit me. To THEM our table was a race...The Retarded Race..

      Please vote against this

      Just imagine
      Your child could be sitting in class learning nothing while the teacher is playing with his/hers Ipad.

      The picture is no exaggeration.
      Students are allowed to sleep, play, dance, learn nothing, get bullied, spoiled, ect.
      THIS MUST END.
      It's a School, not a playground.

      Here's a fun fact.
      I was told that I was "Learning Disabled"
      Meaning I can't learn (as they put it)
      "So if I'm learning disabled, why am I in school?" I asked...and they could not answer.

      That program is a walking contraindication and defies the Laws of Education.
