After thinking about what I said I realized that I got a little ahead of myself and off subject.
I would like to apologize for the "r" word. I didn't mean it to offend anyone. I also seem to have mis spoke about the staff at my child's school, I accused the wrong person and I apologize. I'm still very upset with the way the Mpusd is run, but that's a different story.
You obviously focused on the wrong things in my comments. The teachers and the staff in my daughters school are very good and I have had a great experience with them. That said, the MPUSD district is the problem when they go out of ther way to higher the underqualified people for some critical jobs. Not all of them are but there are a few in particular. I take my child's education very seriously! You seem to be the only person I've heard that had a good experience with MPUSD. you must be related to someone in the front office. The district over the last 15 yrs had done a lot of questionsble things, they like to tell everyone they value there opinion but still do what they want. I'm not sure what you mean by " the pot calling the kettle black" I said nothing about the new speech therapist that was not true. This person was also not familiar with my child's devices or how they worked. I think you may have gotten the MPUSD mixed up with the county offices. MPUSD has been trying to phase out the county for years and they just don't have the resources that they should. They need to do there homework better. I not sure what you mean by intellectual ability but I think our situations may be different. I don't need a lecture on the "R" word and I don't appreciate it. It is my opinion based on the facts of my family's situation. I think the people reading these comments should be smart enough to figure that out without over reacting.
This article is great! I understand exactly what it's like to deal with these RETARDS! My daughter has cochlear implants and is mainstreamed into a classroom at monte vista. It's not because of anything MPUSD ever did for us and I feel sorry for the people coming in. Every year they cut the budget more it seems and put even more less qualified people in charge of our children's education. If my family had the money I would move to PG or Carmel too! The best part that the article doesn't say is that the new speech therapist that the school district hired has a speech impediment of her own! My daughter can barley understand her and she's the one teaching our deaf kids how to speak! WOW! To me and my family this is very unacceptable! They need to spend that $14,500 on paying a real speech therapist or give it back to the families to pay for someone themselves. The MPUSD has been disappointing me since the day my oldest kid went to his first day in kindergarten. These people need to be stopped! Along with their misappropriation of our children's special needs children. If these kids were foreign it wouldn't be this hard. Which is even more sad and a whole different subject!
