A letter to the editor titled, "The tragedy of drug babies," had totally shocked and disturbed me. I suppose a "substitute" teacher had this one and single momentary time with a class of special education.
I believe to compare and label a child with mental and physical disabilities as a "drug baby" is a derogatory statement and was certainly uncalled for. Mr. Ed Woeten, being the author of this doctrine, and considering yourself a teacher, a person of the ‘lear-ned,' you certainly are "stupid."
Although wait … I don't want to belittle myself by using such vernacular, so allow me to call you "ignorant." Ignorant is a word defined as someone who has a lack of knowledge. I will be fair and say that your opinion was deeply uninformed!
I do not know if you wrote this letter for the sheer avaricious reason to get your name in the paper or you believe that your opinion was justified by your newfound experience with the children of mental and physical disabilities.
