I got bullied alot there all because I was in Special classes since I was 3 years old. The teachers there are liars. They allowed me to be bullied and lied about it instead of telling the bullies to leave me alone and stop lying about how they weren't picking me. I never deserved that at all. This is not appropriate behavior and I wouldn't allow my kids to go to that class after high school because they let bullies into their class when they really shouldn't be doing. I'm telling the truth rather my family likes it or not!
