"All Special Needs kids need to burn in hell"
It's funny when education is wasted on people like this boy.
It's funny how he is so ignorant to his own flaws that are shamed deep within his mind
but theirs are shamed but come out without their consent
How maybe it isn't his fault because "Special Needs" comes before "People"
I stopped laughing.
This is no different than racism. Or sexism.
It is a sickness in society
Proof being that a person with Special Needs was not granted access to all public schools
Proof being that the students I work with
Proof being that grown adults
Refuse to walk on the same side of the hallway
Proof being that whenever I tell others
I want to teach these people
They scoff and tell me
I will be poor
but I laugh.
I laugh because they're people. Flawed people.
And so are my students.
And so am I.
I would be just as ignorant without them.
And maybe one day the money won't matter to them
and they'll want to become something greater
A journey that my students already started.
I smile and wish him luck.
