Dear Ann a final word to a Maple Leaf a the Canadian who was outraged because schools in the to. S. Don t teach More about a your neighbors to the maybe he has a Point but i think the schools in the United states had better teach the students what s going on in their own country first. I live in South Carolina. Would you believe that i have met visitors from the North who believe we still have slaves Down Here and that the Kun flux Elan is running things when i Tell them i Don t own a Plantation they Are very disappointed. It seems their impressions of the South Are formed by books like a Uncle Tom s Cabin and a gone with the so. Dear in. Do what you can to pour a Little Oil on the troubled Waters. Apologize to our Canadian friends for our ignorance and Tell them it s worse than they think a no dogs Down Here either dear no dogs this weeks mail was an Eye opener. Thanks for adding another Nail to the coffin. Dear Ann i have a special Gripe against parents and educators of retarded children. I refer to those who have the idea that retarded children cannot learn. If a retarded child can memorize to commercials and dirty words he can learn Reading writing and simple arithmetic. All it takes is a Little patience and a lot of persistence. Our ten year old son goes to a school for the retarded. They were not teaching him to read and i went to school and asked Why. The teacher said a what is the use of teaching a child to read if he can to comprehend a so we decided to Tutor him at Home and it was amazing How Well he did. It soon became apparent that he understood a great Deal More than he had let on. On visits to the classroom i noticed the teachers let the children spend a great Deal of time with building blocks colouring books and Cut out designs. Very Little Effort was made to teach them something. Its easier of course to let them play. Teaching retarded children is hard work if these children Are prodded into working to full potential they will not be tax burdens when they Are older. When we allow them to a a play and done to encourage them to learn we deprive them of the Joy of achievement and the dignity of self respect. Please get this vital message across to or. And mrs. America. A a Mother in Indiana dear Mother every word you have written is Correct. However i cannot permit you to paint with such a Broad Brush. Not All teachers of retarded children Are As indifferent and Lazy As your letter would have us believe. In Many schools for the retarded the teachers Are dedicated and hard working and the children Are working to full potential. Thank you for writing however.
