    How the fuck do you know what any kids in any school are or are not learning? Who the fuck are you to belittle children with special challenges trying to get what is guaranteed to all children in this country; an education. Why the fuck didn’t you ever get one? You are the lowest of the fucking low to use kids facing these kinds of challenges to make some petty political point or to play out some stupid fucking online persona. Very sincerely, fuck you.

    Given the shit children are allowed to get away with in classrooms just now it is amazing only that anyone becomes a teacher. Perhaps there is a deep strain of masochism that's being tapped?

    Why would anybody want to do that? And even for those who are initially willing, it MUST have a high burnout rate.

    How could there NOT be a shortage?

    You can't make up your mind can you? Are these children in wheelchairs "cash cows" for the schools, or do they cost too much money and eat up resources? Which is it?

    Doesn't matter, you're going to scorn them either way. I hope you realize that you are always, always, one good head bash or spinal cord injury from this yourself. Not to mention Alzheimer's or dementia. The human condition is frightfully perilous. Your words and attitude are disgusting.

    How many special needs children have you worked in your life that you can say this--that they "aren't learning anything"?

    A rough estimate will do.

    These are exactly the situations I'm talking about in the OP--when things get violent, that's the no-go zone for me. That's when the child can be removed from the classroom altogether, and if that doesn't work, the school. Period, end of story.

    If that would have happened, Nikolas Cruz would not have happened. Most likely, anyway.

    Why do you see these kids as competing for funds with your kids ? Isnt the obvious answer to increase the fundng so that everybody gets a decent education ? Why do you need a minority group to blame every time ?
