I’m feeling emboldened tonight so let me make this clear…
I am a dyslexia advocate. My state, and more importantly my district, do not understand dyslexia, don’t have a clue how to teach reading, and they do not care that they neither understand nor have the capacity to understand.
I am a dyslexia advocate not just because my child is dyslexic but once I saw the injustice to our children within education I was disgusted by that injustice and inequity.
I used to believe education truly cared about educating our children. I have learned that while teachers are altruistic and well meaning, the establishment and all those with their deep hooks in the idea of what education should be, have not corrupted it, but dismantled it to the point where it is unrecognizable.
Our children are not being educated. They just aren’t. It would be laughable if it wasn’t so devastating. Education is therefore left to us, the parents, and in a world where more and more is demanded of each of us each every single second, the responsibility to provide what we thought schools were providing is overwhelming, yet here we are. This falls to each and every one of us who has a child regardless of any other factor. While some will say that’s the responsibility of being a parent, I then challenge why we have schools at all. We pay for them, they are supposed to serve our communities, so why is that exactly the burden of the parent? It’s one or the other, not both in a disproportionate measure on the side of the parents, yet it is.
I am a dyslexia advocate because the more I learn, the more I am compelled to share and educate others.
I am a dyslexia advocate because the injustice against our society as a whole is criminal. Socially and economically, this is the dismantling of a country. If that was the objective, congratulations, you’re doing an amazing job of achieving your end goal.
But I am a dyslexia advocate because the right of free speech means I get to look at you and disagree with you and work for change, and I will not give up until we win.
Maybe you’re emboldened by recent events, but the fact of the matter is, you’re wrong and you are FAILING all of our children each and every day. Your ineptness is without a doubt the most laughably tragic yet monumentally stupid failure I’ve ever witnessed. For once, while I normally say failure is something positive to learn from, your failure to learn just proves the depth of your ignorance. I can also say your failure only emboldens us as you continue to learn nothing and taunt parents like playground bullies.
So keep on with the pom poms and fan fare and pretense that you actually care about our dyslexic children. Go ahead. Truly. I enjoy watching the massive stupidity. Also, keep smiling at me and condescendingly calling me “Mom” and “Mrs. Roberts” like you actually respect me. The condescension is fun because you really don’t even grasp how condescending I am to you. After all, I like it when sheep play with lions. It’s fun.
Oh, and one more thing, I dare you, DARE YOU, to retaliate against my child. Truly. Please be that stupid. Well, I already know you are that stupid, but I just want to see you go that far. I will enjoy raining hell with a gleeful satisfaction that only toddlers understand.
And I also beg you, please underestimate me, please think I’m bluffing, please; I’m salivating at the idea that you will because there’s not a single person inside your district that I’m afraid of. Not a single one. This Texas girl was raised to fight back against bullies, and I’ve always got my sh** kickers on.
Because whether you like it or not, whether you want to admit it or not, this is a #DyslexiaRevolution and you’ve already lost, you just don’t know it yet, and that just makes it all the more entertaining.
