School has special needs kids digging through trash
This story just turned my stomach. As a mom of a special needs kid who can stick up for himself and refuse to something like that....it makes my heart ache for those who can't.

Life skills should be about learning to take the bus, handling money, telling time (you'd be surprised how difficult it is budget time), preparing them for employment, resume and job applications. Even some personal habits like what to wear (don't wear middle school shirts in high school gym).

Digging through garbage to teach kids about recycling isn't a life skill that can't be taught by just telling them throw your plastic bottles where the plastics go (like I did).

It just pissed me off.


Wind's in the east, a mist coming in
Like something is brewing and about to begin
Can't put my finger on what lies in store
but I feel what's to happen has happened before...

I am doing a reddit gifts for a teacher who does special ed kids.

Gonna save up some cash and go shopping for the school supplies they need. Hopefully I can get them a lot.

Live for yourself, because no one else will do it for you.

WTF is wrong with people? I hate the actual heart ache I feel when I've heard such ridiculousness.
