This happens to the best of us. Somehow the educational system is able to override the knowledge we thought we had as former educators. Either through our emotions, or our unearned trust in the system because we knew we were trustworthy educators ourselves. I’ve written about my son’s six year struggle to get help from the schools for his dyslexia, and I had been a 504 coordinator. I also believe racism played a part.
