I’m starting to question at what point people are going to shut up about “political correctness”. I’m starting to worry about my sister’s safety in her current school.
She has a student in her class that, and don’t quote me on this because I don’t know the whole story, was possibly abused and enters a frenzied rage if he ever suddenly remembers his father. He’s only in grade 5, but he’s already broken off a chunk of a desk and thrown desks all around a classroom. The problem is that the child is unpredictable and a hazard to the other student. I think that he should be removed from the general public and relocated somewhere that can handle this type of person.
I am AWARE that this isn’t his fault, but he must still be held accountable for his actions. There was an incident in which he ran at and attempted to stab a teacher. What if it had been a student? What if it had been a younger, smaller student? How much are the parents going to like sitting at their child’s funeral and all the school can say is “Well the boy who killed your child deserves the same education as everyone else”.
Let me go off on a small tangent:
The point of that whole spiel was, even if our society understands that the child is not at fault for what he is doing, should he still be allowed to enter the public (schools in particular, where there are plenty of un-supervised moments)?
EDIT: ok, I should probably add that the school is also French Immersion, which is legally required to be accessible in Canada as of the seventies (not 100% sure about the year)
There are schools in the area that cater to special needs students, but none that offer French Immersion so there is an awkward "He has the right to learn french"/"He's special needs" sort of thing going on.
