If I had to give you one piece of advice it would be this: Don’t be intimidated by other peoples’ opinions.
college is catered towards the able bodied and able minded. school applauds people who can stay up all night, skip meals, and work endlessly. that kind of extreme contribution is expected. why are disabled people being squeezed out of academic institutions? why should I feel inferior because of some arbitrary and ridiculous standard?
Honestly, I disagree with this. I think post-secondary institutions are fairly accommodating of students with disabilities but to some degree, education systems have to be centered around putting in the time and I don’t believe that is unfair. It is probably the way to make education most accessible to people from all background. & This is coming from someone who still has high school courses to complete and has had to delay starting university for a minimum of 2 years due to chronic post concussion syndrome. If someone has to take only 1 class at a time due to a disability or needs any other accommodations, they should be allowed. I sympathize with anyone who feels that way due to the pressure of not being able to keep up with school. We need awareness and education, but I wouldn’t go as far as to say that colleges are run on an arbitrary standard. What needs to stop is people with disabilities being made to feel inferior.
Fun Cognitive Bias Fact of the Day –
The more you know about a complex subject, the more you realize that there is more to be known and, therefore, the more likely you are to think of yourself as not knowing much about it.
So those that feel as though they know most are often those whose knowledge can be described as shallow at best. Meanwhile the real experts often qualify everything they say and are quicker to express uncertainty and incompleteness of understanding. So all else being equal, most uninformed people are naturally inclined to believe the confident neophyte over the real expert.
What… the… FUCK?!
School logic. You protect yourself and others and get punished because you choose to act rather than be silent and let them do whatever they want. Its the policy they have for everything, from bullying to this.
okay what the actual fuck
Yep if someone hits you you get suspended whether you hit back or not
