A.K.A. Hell on Earth. Special education is designed for students with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and other special needs to have guidance throughout school. What special ed really does is take really smart good spirited kids and put them down and make them feel like shit. There’s a whole separate room for special ed kids called “resource room”. Which is the worst period of the day. All the “normal” kids walk by and stare at you to make things worse. If that isn’t embarrassing enough, no teacher takes anything you say into consideration and talks to you like you’re a preschooler. They think that just because you learn slower, that you’re stupid as hell. And if you decide you don’t want to be in special education anymore, you’re in for a rough battle. Teachers will fight you to stay in, to the point where you give up just because none of the idiots from your school listen to what you know is best for you. Want to have a stable social life with other kids in school? You can say goodbye to that thanks to being in special ed classes. Even other students think of you like you are a dumbass.

Student: Loses his/her shit and gets suspended

My daughter receives special education in school.

Any first name unfortunately bestowed upon a child that is shared with the name of a city, state, car or truck model, precious metal or stone, liquor, or a general word that indicates something of worth. Your child is destined to require Special Education if you make the unfortunate decision to name them one of these. Examples include, but are not limited to: London, Dakota (meets criteria of truck model and state), Platinum, Diamond, Courvoisier, or Treasure.
Dakota is in sixth grade, but still cannot recite his ABC's. Wow, it's gotta be the Special Education name his parents gave him.
