You are right bobnakridge! My brother is a 6th grade Math teacher at Norris Middle School and we were discussing today some of the downfalls that TN has in its education program.

I am not sure how interested you are in Autism but I have a couple of students with Autism and what we do has really helped with focus and discipline!

I have friends with children that have Autism.I am a former bus driver for the city of NY and transported children with develpomental disabilities.I find it sad the lack of interest here in East TN in education and the real lack of interest in special needs children.

I agree. The problem is that people like Myron Iwanski have NO sympathy for these children. There are initiatives out there to help and he is trying to block them. I voted for him in the past, never again.
