What you said about labelling is true. Reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from Carl Jung. "When one understands, one does not judge." The Special Ed program here is really a commendable one. Kids are not "condemned" to a life of hopelessness and perceived uselessness. Talagang, at its core, the program says each human life has value. :)


As we always say...our struggle is not with the kids.

When you see kids in a classroom, all you can see is hope.

Its the parents really that are a bit of a bother to deal with.

All of them feel that the State should do 'more' for their kids... when truth of the matter is, they really should do their share in the raising of their kids.

A frustration we have is parents tend to treat the schools like a daycare/child drop off center. They expect their kids to learn everything in school.... but honestly there are just some things best learned at home.

Case in point is English as a Second Language. We can talk to the kids all day at school in English BUT when they go home and go back to speaking in Mexican, Vietnamese or whatever their first language is... then all efforts are just that. Efforts. No results.

We always say to the parents that if their kids take ESL, they should also take Adult ESL. But a very small percentage of the parents do so.... to the detriment of their kids.

Hay.

Mahirap nga kung walang reinforcement at home. :( Kawawa naman iyong mga bata. It's a problem when for various reasons, some parents don't want to get out of their comfort zones.

Timeout muna ako, Tita K. Lunch na kasi dito e. :) See you in a bit.

In fairness ... scary naman talaga to learn a new language. Lalo at bago ka sa lugar na tinitirahan mo ...

Sige have a good lunch Tito WB... Bring me cheesecake! ;)

I was planning to buy McDonalds Breakfast this morning talaga... tapos my tita called me at the ungodly hour of 530 am asking for a favor.

I wheedled a Big Breakfast out of her ... I had that for lunch.

re: pre-school, I am surprised that they even have an occupational theraphist and speech therapist in class aside from the room teacher.

Not here in Tx ... no snow. But sleet predicted next week.

On preschool: when the need for an occupational/speech therapist is established then said therapist will have an hour or so per classroom where the need is established.

The school system cannot afford a full time therapist for each class... even the SpEd classrooms dont get full time therapists. Theyre a shared resource...
