With one special needs child, and two others who need some assistance at school, but who cope with a little extra support, it fills me with horror to read the stories of what is going on around Scotland this year. The support staff from different authorities seem to be targetted. The cuts are savage, and directed at the welfare of the disadvantaged population.
When other cuts, such as music have been mentioned, people have been up in arms and complaining about it in huge numbers. It is sad that ASN children are not seen as an attractive enough issue to warrant the public rising up to protect them.
I am ashamed of my country, my government, and my local council.
There, I’ve said it.
