TRUTH: Students with Down syndrome are included in typical academic classrooms in schools across the country. The current trend in education is for full inclusion in social and educational settings. Sometimes students with Down syndrome are included in specific courses, while in other situations students are fully included in the typical classroom for all subjects. Increasingly, individuals with Down syndrome graduate from high school with diplomas, and participate in postsecondary academic and college programs.
MYTH: People with Down syndrome cannot be active members of their community.
it’s anecdotal and absurd anyone gets upset at being stereotyped if not called a slur… it’s so retarded that even the word “retarded” is a goddamn slur. Words never harm you unless you allow it to. This utter bullshit of it harming you at a mental level is not totally been fully brought to light as substantial if not even true. It’s more interesting that Hebrewic or Yiddish words used in Jewish communities like “goyen/goyim” and “gentile” are used to regard to non-Jewish if anything caucasians… Due that it was a slur used by them on pagans, they even use it to this day. It’s funny as hell, but yet I am not sweating balls over it. Even the word pharaoh supposedly is a Hebrewic word to describe the hat that the active Kings of Egypt wore, which btw is what Egyptian rulers were called, KINGS, not pharaohs. This no doubt, is a slur, due once again, think about it… Take for instance the slur, of anything regarding the word “shylock…” or “iago…” But mostly “shylock…” Which most likely came from the Shakespearean play “The Merchant of Venice…” and often describe someone (usually as a slur) of a Jewish ethnicity.
