Speak Up: A waste of resources


Tuesday, February 6, 2018

Today I had a chance to see our tax money being squandered.

I noticed in a handicapped classroom at a local high school there were students in wheelchairs.

There were only six students in this class and five adults.

That is a one-on-one situation and this does not include special services that come in such as physical and occupational therapy.

If students were in a group home or nursing home, there would be only one adult taking care of 5-6 at a minimum.

This is a waste of money that could be spent on other students with other learning or health impairments.

Adults in this room were cooking their own food, playing games and on their phones.

This is a waste.

Someone needs to investigate this.
