I was nodding my head the entire time I read Daniel Shoer Roth’s Nov. 15 column, Prejudice in the heart of Florida. It took guts to write that and I applaud him. As the mother of a high-functioning child with Down Syndrome, I know the daily trials of raising a special-needs child. I cannot even begin to imagine the troubles that parents of the children Shoer Roth describes face.
I hope The Miami Herald continues to publish articles on the problems with the system and, I hope, some day things will change.
