Miss Fortune published a comment yesterday that contained a serious allegation about Mancelona's North Central Academy: the lack of a required special education instructor.
Another reader provided a link to vital information about special education in Michigan's public school academies.
Here's a recap of the reader's allegation:
“A dear friend of mine who still attends NCA said that they have not had a special ed instructor in the building for months now. This is completely out of line and not fair to the principal and staff. Most importantly, this is not fair to those kids who need special ed assistance.
They are going to pull their child at the end of this school year. Brian Lynch's ignorance to run a school like NCA has caused this whole situation. To make it worse, he's arrogant and full of himself. At least that's how he was when I knew him. I can't blame the staff and parents for wanting out of there. Someone needs to kick him out and get someone in there that knows what they're doing.”
If there has been unlawful discrimination of a student needing special education services, contact the Michigan Department of Civil Rights.
