SOMETIMES I NEED JUST to get out into the countryside—to reconnect with the land, to see the sky, to feel the pulse of the earth. I need to see farms, follow rural roads, hear the crunch of tires upon gravel, pass by rows of grain […]
Private schools are not required to provide services for special education students. The public school district is still required to find these students and offer them the services.
I wonder how that will mix once Devos tries to get all students into special education.
My inclination is that an influx of students will make private school more selective. They will have greater resources, but that will still have limits. They will take the high achieving students and ignore the low achieving students. Those students that require smaller class sizes for example.
This will make a hardship on public schools as they have less students that are cheaper to teach.
I think it will make it more difficult on special education students. I think there might be court cases saying that a student was turned away due to their disability. I think that there will be more lawsuits against private schools in regards to special education students.
There will be more lawsuits against school districts. Which overall is a good thing. The law keeps people in check.
Public schools have the responsibility to provide a free and appropriate education for students. In other words, the education must be equal to a nondisabled student. That means accommodations and special education teachers. However, that education will probably be at the public school. It is up to the parent to decide to put them in that class or keep them at the private school.
It’s like medical care. Hospitals are required to give you medical care. But you must go to their hospital. The law does not make them go to your home.
Now a special education student may thrive at a private school. But what is going to happen when the private schools do not meet their needs?
Nobody likes what they have. There is always something better and it is in our nature to find problems. Perhaps most importantly, nothing is perfect, but we want things to be.
And that is why Trump was elected. He is a salesman and he used salesman techniques to sell himself. I noticed that seeing all of his promises put together. He promised everything. Health care that did everything and was cheaper. He promised a balanced budget that expanded the military. This is low-balling.
According to Merriam-Webster.com. Merriam-Webster, n.d. Web. 22 Mar. 2017, Definition of lowball
1 : to give (a customer) a deceptively low price or cost estimate

He gave the racists what he wanted. He promised them what they wanted while saying no one is less racist than me. In this way, he won over the racist and many moderates. He gave the fundamentalist what they wanted by being anti-abortion. Then he promised the large amount of disgruntled voters what they wanted. That he was not beholding to politicians or greedy Wall Street jerks. He still says that while putting those exact kind of people in position of power. Words are more powerful than facts.
He does not care. His job was to land the big client, the American people. He wants to go on and keep selling and leave the delivery to Bannon and his crew. He may not even support what they are doing, but he is not concerned with that. That is not his skill set so he is not even going to try. Instead, he’s going back on the road and do some more selling. That is where the adrenaline rush is.
Selling is his comfort zone. It is a money-getting skill, but you don’t have to be brilliant for it. You just used the time-tested techniques. So it’s how he approaches everything. Dealing with reporters and dealing with foreign heads of state. He believes that he can succeed with his limited skill set. However, his ad campaign of a ,er, campaign worked on the individual voter and running a government is not. After all, as Abraham Lincoln said, You can’t play a player,
