|McAllen expands it's munching of Laredo|
Tonight on Pro8news, there was a piece about two parents who have become frustrated with the failure of UISD's special education department to provide adequate services to their son. The boy was born deaf but was able to hear after a ground-breaking operation. Now, the boy is eight years old but has yet to learn how to read. According to the parents, the reason for this is that UISD does not properly train it's special education teachers. The parents also mentioned that sometimes a special education aide may sit with their son but he is not really learning much.
To the dismay of the Mayor and some city councilmen, the parents specifically pointed out that Laredo's schools are unable to keep up with schools in other cities such as......yes, McAllen, Texas. Once again, it looks like McAllen is eating Laredo's lunch.
