Public schools educating severely mentally disabled children is a depressing waste of resources.

Gonna upvote cause its an actual unpopular opinion, but gonna have to HIGHLY disagree with you there chief. I work at a school doing this exact thing, and i do admit and agree that certain kids with disabilities so severe can cause danger to general ed kids, staff, and themselves. Public school isnt for them. Yet for other kids on the spectrum its not a "waste" of resources. Kids with autism deserve a chance at any education and a chance to live a normal life. For the benefit of themselves, their family, and even society. They learn enough not just to read and count, but to learn how to act as normally as possible in society so they can live normal lives. If thats a waste of resources then I dont know what to tell you.
