When Castro posted the above altered video no where did he tell his readers it was fake.  Only after he was called out by his readers who had seen the original CNN coverage with live voice coverage telling the viewer the truth, did Castro admit it was a fake.

Here is the real video.

It would please me more than you can imagine if my readership went to zero if that is the price I would have to pay to get people to stop reading social media for news.  Now social media can be informative and helpful when the writer makes it personal.

I get a lot of emails from people all over the country telling me they read about my medical issues and it got them researching their own problems and put them in the right direction.  That is why I post same.

Barton posts a lot of stories about the learning process of his grandson.  There is an important story there.  I have seen it far too many times while helping families fight BISD to get their child the help they need.  BISD cares not one bit about children who learn differently or children if given the chance will learn at an amazing rate.  I wish I could do for Bela what Jim and Nena are doing for their grandson, but Bela thrives on the social part of school.  Now she has agreed to allow me to spend an hour with her every day to push her on her reading and second grade math so she will be ahead of the game when she starts second grade. Because of being sick I have not been able to keep my promise.  She is also upset her National Geographic subscription ran out.  For now I will have to buy them at the store because it takes two months to restart the subscription.  For now she reads from them with her aunt so she is getting the advanced reading and knowledge.

Talking to Bela is like talking to an adult.  You can talk to her about anything and she will understand.  She loves helping the teacher with the younger kids who are not learning as fast.  While I believe at home she would be at the 4th grade level by now, I also know she would be unhappy not being social in school.  Other cities have groups of parents who teach their children at home, but meet regularly so the children can be more social and join clubs like they do at school.  Brownsville needs this.

But the story is, parents and grandparents who are not trained as teachers can do more for their children than BISD.  This is a major headline story coming from reflections on one's personal life.

I completely agree!! I am a resident if Brownsville and I homeschool my children! I also feel they are getting a better learning experience at home than what they would get from the BISD!!

You are entitle to your own opinion; however, your child is not going to receive a complete curriculum in all areas of education. Take time to visit a classroom where students are being taught advance math, science, and technology and you will see what education is all about. Things that you are unable to provide to your child in home schooling. Just because somebody believes that BISD or any other public schools are not doing their job in educating our children; does not mean that they are correct.

So to be clear you are saying this particular child who is at least 3 years ahead of where he would be at BISD means he is not getting the advanced math for example. Not all parents can be good home school teachers. Not all teachers can teach. I have been in the classroom teaching to see the nightmare BISD is. I have helped endless parents successfully appeal BISD decisions and get their children the right help. In my book this means the teacher telling me I was wrong, was in fact the one who was wrong.

You illiterate people only read what you want to read. I went out of my way to balance my comment with the importance of the social part of the school. Whis is why in bigger cities they have home teaching groups with parents who organize a lot of social events, and even exchange teaching duties because one parent may be better in math and another in science.

Every study shows children, even very bright children learn in smaller groups. I doubt you know the reality of the classroom. BISD puts children who need extra help in regular classrooms. Because of anxiety or other reasons the child cannot handled it so they act out unintentionally. The teacher then has to take away from teaching to deal with the child. This takes away from the other children. I have personally forced BISD to put this kids in smaller classrooms where they thrive and then the teacher in the larger classroom can better focus on his or her 30 students.

You might want to step into the classroom to see the truth. Good teachers are trashed ever day because they cannot control the classroom because of kids who can and want to learn are in the wrong classroom. This is unfair to the teacher and the other childre.

If a parent believes BISD is not serving their child, they have a duty to pull them out and teach them at home if they can.

You clearly do not comprehend English. When you learn English come back to the BV - for now I would prefer you no read the BV. I have no time to teach you English.

"The home-educated typically score 15 to 30 percentile points above public-school students on standardized academic achievement tests. (The public school average is the 50th percentile; scores range from 1 to 99.) A 2015 study found Black homeschool students to be scoring 23 to 42 percentile points above Black public school students (Ray, 2015).
Homeschool students score above average on achievement tests regardless of their parents’ level of formal education or their family’s household income."

No matter how much you hate reality, it still exists.

What is your opinion on homeschool or BISD for children with special needs? Such as those who have low-functioning Autism. Would homeschooling be better? Thanks.

I think it is up to the child and parents. AUTISM IS PART OF A BROD SPECTRUM. Some children is good one on one instruction might thrive at bisd. But a child hypersensitive to noise night do better at home. You child example is too general. Dallas isd kicked out a child with asberger. The parents got herthe help and she thrived in a private should. Every cold is different

The typing monkey whas has zero training in education or experience has spent two day posting moronic comments. He knows it was a typo when I typed brod and not broad. My tracking system shows he has been on my blog for at least 25 minutes. He must be oftly bored to spend 25 minutes reading stories on a blog he consideres a complete waste of time.

No he will deny this but several weeks ago he admitted to posting something anony to my blog, and then tried to post under his name blaming google for the mistake. When you have an account with google and you try to post it automatically chooses your name, and not anony, so his claim he forgot to switch from anony to his name was a lie. But more importantly he verified his IP address. It is at wherever he lives and not some non-existent office, with fictious writers wrting fictious stories.

So here is the deal Imp, I have a masters in education and in fact have taught at Houston Community college. I have direct experience with Asperger children. I stay informed. Many parents complain they hate when people look at them like they are a bad parent because their child is screaming in the store. Well they are screaming because their form of Autism make them very sensitive to noise. A member of our extended family has the same problem with her son, and every knows when he begins to get upset we need to lower the noise. Everyone is fine with it because he needs to be with his cousins and extended family. I spent 6 weeks working with special needs children at Dallas ISD. Many suffered from different forms of Autism. I cared enough to call the parent to find out about any special ways I need to interact with their child, and read their folder which had additional information.

So there you have my knowledge typing monkey. What is yours other then being angry all of the time because you chose to never get truly educated.

Fromn the typing monkey who approves no comments attacking me for not approving his. Okay Maria, when were you a special ed teacher because that awad only goes to special ed teachers.

"This award is for special education teachers who have made an outstanding contribution to the lives of children with autism or Asperger’s Syndrome."

Did you think I would not research it?

That's absolutely true about children with Autism. Each one is different but their sensitivity to lights,sound, and textures in food vary. It's a challenge just to cope with everyday life.
