I've noticed lately that a few people in Ireland seem to be interested in what I write about, so I would like to ask you this question.
What is Irish society's view toward students with learning disabilities?
Are these kids left behind in Ireland the way they are in America, and are they blamed for the situations in which they are forced into due to the stereotypes, which eventually lead to being shut out of the workplace and the middle class income which comes along with it?
Since studies demonstrate that children who have learning disabilities are more likely to be beaten in the classroom and suspended by administrators in the United States, is the same true in Ireland?
Do attitudes toward children with learning disabilities vary from region to region in Ireland?
That's the case in America, as children with learning disabilities are far more likely to be beaten by administrators and bullied by their peers in Republican states than they are in Democratic states. This is because Republicans believe in law and order at any price, while Democrats want to find out why certain behaviours occur before any retribution is dealt.
Guess what that means? It means that these kids are more likely to drop out of school and end up in the correctional system: prison-which is why I, personally, don't care one bit about any of the violent crime in America.
What do you do differently and how do you help students with special needs become productive adults? Americans don't have any clue about what to do with us, short of letting the police murder us in cold blood.
Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
