This My Thoughts:

I disagree with a lot of the points brought up in this article. I actually think that raising the minimum wage would be a detriment to our society. Even though it would give some people more money, it would drive our economy further into debt, and also raise general prices.

The concept of special education

The concept of special education | Michael Carl | Scoop.it
Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs.

 

Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs. They are a lifeline to children with special needs since children with special needs are constrained in their learning process because of their disabilities. It is just because of the special education teachers that they acquire the basic skills in education and life overall, and may learn to live independently. Special education teachers adapt the general education curriculum to suit the unique needs of each student. 

 

Thus, special education is a lifeline for those students who have special needs. They personally take care of the special needs of the students by modifying or changing the curriculum accordingly to the extent of disability, wether mild or moderate. With students having severe disabilities, they tend to teach such students basic skills so that students with disabilities can lead their lives independently and teach them basiccommunication skills and mathematics. 

Special education teacher assess the strengths and needs of each student and set their teaching goals accordingly. They help develop Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), which outlines the kind of education each student with special needs will receive. Special education teachers need to be calm, patient, organized, inspiring and accepting. Special education students can come with a varying degree of disabilities and from various backgrounds.

Special education teachers, hence, have to be understanding and have very effective communication skills, as special education students have difficulty in conveying their needs and ideas. Special education teachers help the students with special needs to feel comfortable in social situations and be aware of socially acceptable behaviour. 

Preparing the special education students for life after school is an important part of the work of special education teachers as they teach their students some basic skills which help them to live independently. Thus, special education teachers are doing a great service to the nation by catering to the needs of students with disabilities and help them live a near normal and dignified life.

It is great to have special education teachers and you can't thank them enough for the job they do in turning around somebody's life. Education is a big part of kid's future, and special education teachers give everyone a fair chance to succeed in life. 

Luke French's comment, May 11, 2014 9:07 PM
Special education teachers are, as Michael said, invaluable. These teachers make nigh-unfathomable differences in these children's lives, and, in my opinion, do not receive due credit.

Luke French's curator insight, May 14, 2014 10:10 PM

This is an article about how Obama's executive order to raise minimum wage to $10.10 could have mixed results. According to certain statistics, by mid 2016, this order has the potential to put 500,000 workers out of work. On the other hand, it has the potential to lift 900,000 families above the poverty line. I think that this executive order should be change a little, maybe lowering the minimum wage to $9.50 or so, thus reducing the number of unemployed workers while still lifting many familes out of poverty.
