Autism Awareness Blog Hop
I'm going simple with this post…
According to a 2012 survey, 27% of children with autism have been excluded from school.
Anyone who's been excluded, whether because of race, religion, gender, sexuality, knows that hurts.
I'm a little stumped on what to write for this today, because I've faced prejudice on many grounds in the forty-something years I've been here.
I wore glasses, was overweight, wore the wrong clothes and spoke with an accent.
I've been on the outside looking in.
It's a fact of our everyday lives.
Only we can make it better by refusing to perpetuate the negativity.
Include diversity in the classroom.
Teach all our children to appreciate one another for their differences,
and we'll end up with a better tomorrow.
