Let's Drink to Fighting the Minions of the Dark
Goader: I read some of the comments in your blog this morning.
The Poverty Law Center has a case against the HC schools for the handling of special-ed children. Go to the Poverty Center online, and you can find the case.
That is a powerful organization. I send it money when I can. I haven't bought a single dress or pair of shoes in months to send this outfit money. The people they defend are the ones the fancy lawyers won't touch because there is no money in it.
I advise your writing the Poverty Law Center and asking if your case can join the current suit against the school system. The picture of the junk-filled room that the administration thought was good enough for these severely retarded children is a killer piece of evidence for the mistreatment of those poor children. Your not being given any instruction when the administration representatives threw you into the classroom, not caring if you knew how to care for the children, would add weight to the case for the HC school system's mistreating special-needs children.
Don't be surprised when you win your child-abuse cooked-up case and exit suspension for the classroom, if I call on you to help me do what we can for the next teacher victim.
A teacher got in touch with me recently who has been treated abysmally. She doesn't want me to reveal details of her case. But I believe she will get past that attitude when she senses how unethical and cruel the board and administration are. Then we can start to shout her case from the rooftops.
The only thing these administration ghouls are afraid of is exposure. They want to do their dirty deeds out of the sunshine. Our job is to make sure they appear in blogs to expose what they are doing to dishonor education.
So polish up your rhetorical skills, Goader. You have a rendezvous with the board-room mike. Lee
PS The reason I can see the big picture even though I often miss the details is that I am old. You will be surprised how much smarter you get the older you get. And there is another advantage to being old. If you have a mop of white hair, cultural protections of the elderly kicks into younger people's psyches. So you as an old person can get away with more daring behavior. And in a pinch, you can always call the Elder Abuse Council if someone annoys you. ldd
