Not so. I just have experience and passion for those like me. We tend to be mistreated frequently. Excuse me for that.All you care about is yourself and people like you.
You have legal mechanisms to prevent that. If you can't prove it to either the State or the Feds, you have no business saying they are stealing an education from anyone.You have absolutely no problem stealing a quality education for everyone
I think we should put that statement into perspective for others (if there is even anyone else around to see this). You argue that students with disabilities are being educated far too frequently in the regular education environment. Even though schools have the ability to argue that without proper supports and accommodations, a student can be a detriment to the rest of the student body and receive an inadequate education, you seem to believe that's not enough.as long as we set unrealistic goals for special needs students, goals which do nothing more than set those children up to fail. You want everyone to suffer, because you had a bad experience.
Despite saying you want a quality education for all students with disabilities, you would prefer that they remain separated from the rest of the student body.
Now, you accuse me of having a bad experience (I did, but I also had many good spots-just like a lot of former special education students) and then wanting to spoil education for everyone else as a result. Nothing could be further than that. However, you have also stated that you were annoyed with people like us, because you (the gifted student), felt like we were ruining your education because we were in there with you. We should have just known our place and not have been educated alongside the rest of you, because it's so unrealistic to expect much of us in life.
So yes, Sly, I think your attitude toward students like this kid has been exaggerated. It was an improper move to remove the kid's cane unilaterally and the school eventually recognized this.
