yHi everyone, I am very disturbed by the fact that when it comes to using what is known to support children learning to cope and thrive with learning issues that are part and parcel to the disorders we are here to discuss schools are not doing it and the federal laws that are SUPPOSE to protect these learners by giving them are applied to avoid doing so. You do know what I mean. What would be the point, do we imagine, when there ARE meathods and specialists who DO KNOW and use these for children of priviledge of withholding these KNOWN tools, skills, meathods, systems that are all of them a result of the investment by now generations of people who value the right to life and the means by which a democracy is protected:education. My family has carried the learning issues that my child is now having and it is sheer cruelty that instead of spending the money that the school DID already recieve because he was in those "Special Education" classrooms, and sesseions with lets be frank, general and not specialist educators? I have had the experiance of the Special Education director in the meeting offering the meathods while the teachers (2) declined each. As my son is not benefiting from his above average/superior range cognitive and comprehension for example in all subjects that require writting. This piece has been gone over and over since the orignal testing made clear that the deficit in his proformance in schooling all pivots on this one skill. And if you will look at the fact pieces for the ADHD learner this matter is fairly common and IT IS SPECIFICLY WRITTEN OUT OF THE LAW! SPEACH AND LANGUAGE are included. Writting is NO WHERE. It reminds me of the Roosevelt years when the discussion of plumbing was in the senate. The ney sayers who did not want plumbing standard in new construction argued "if the poor have plumbing, how will we tell who is rich and who is poor?" It is also the train of thought behind the idea that in the treatment of cancer that the effective science be available to the cash paying elite and the insured recieve only the low cost, more hazarous, and less effective old meathods because these are 'cheaper'. Somehow in a garden planet where the abundance of nature and the techknologic avancement of food preservation led to a economic model that calls that heft of a bumper crop "profit" we are confronted today with a perverse thinking process where once SOMETHING is known rather than share the advancement and reveal in our colective oppertunity here on earth IT IS HOARDED! The Captiolist will holler "COMMUNIST"! BUt give me a break with that redoric. What what what 'value' is that to withhold from the balance sheets what by sheer effort catipults an age from wallowing in a MANMADE privation? Plumbings primary benifits were in creating an environment that was not nearly as prone to diseases in these high population years. Pursueing the medical science THAT WORKS BEST then allows to strive even further to the next "Yureka!" to create a cure. ANd desisting from the long standing habit of pretence that the commonly found disorders that inhibit learning are so ding dangy "special" that when it comes to LETTING the educational specialists and the KNOWN means for giving these children the lifelong means for academic excellence that then imbues society with more compitent adults is utterly a reflection of humanities perverse membership. That is what I am thinking about today as the means that the wealthy families in my county compell the District to give their children that is withheld by the education attorney JQ.esq from the children in this county who are in families whose parents are disabled from working and whose health was the sacrifce at the alter of the capitolist, the 'insuring' industry, and the use of the disability act to withhold and neglect people. When do we stop throwing people under the bus? We do it to children and we have heaps of folks who are just happy as pie that it is the status quo. These meathods ARE hoarded. It is a sad and sorry testiment to the intentionally retarding practises that the Disability Act aplied to schools was intended to stop. And low and behold the interpertation of the law is specificly applied to keep it just that way. Amazing.
