I’m very thankful for all the parent and community activists who hold the district accountable.
Logan Heights has been my home since 1986; my neighbors have so many added barriers to participation: limited English proficiency, inflexible work hours, cultural differences, financial difficulties, among others.
This has lead to the chronic underrepresentation at all district advisory committees of communities like mine. I have witnessed school site staff urging parents who do not speak English to sign IEPs written enrirely in English. In addition, these same staff members served as translators and interpreters. This is unlawful and damaging to students with disabilities and their families and is just one example of the educational abuses that the most vulnerable children within our disyrict endure.
This is why I am so thankful for every sincere and committed student advocate.
