SHOW "MOMS" DID WHAT MIKE HERNANDEZ SHOULD HAVE DONE INSTEAD OF WASTING SO MUCH MONEY BUYING SILENCE AND IN LITIGATION - JUST ACT AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The elderly mom decides to get her GED so she can get a contractor's license.  She cannot handle the classroom.  After she fails another friend tells her she can be tested so she can get special accommodations during the teaching and testing.

The issue was not only ADD but also classroom anxiety.  I breaks my heart every time a student fails the GED because there is no service in Brownsville to test these adults to get them help.

My long term readers know I have been at this for so so long.  It still rubs me raw when I asked UTB College of Education to set up a clinic for their students learning how to test for special needs and to use adults for their clinical experience. It was a win win for UTB and their students in terms of experience and the adults BISD abandoned to only end up as drop outs.

I am so jaded with politics because this is such an easy thing to help so many people move up and  the political machines and candidates do not care.

The BISD Board of Trustees should have to watch this episode over and over and over again and maybe they will finally get it.

BISD has a lot of great programs but when it comes to special needs children they just shit on them.

Today I sent a parent to the TEA because BISD is just dismissing a life threatening issue with a child.  They have offered no ARD. The staff are not aware of the child's needs because the principal does not give a crap, and I can assure you BISD never will give a crap.  This child is disabled by medical diagnosis with a dangerous condition and BISD has nothing but excuses for providing no accommodations. Why?  Every principal knows there is no money for special needs children and if they start helping too many kids they will be sent to food services.
