    1. to be taken from that environment and put in an institution where there’s nothing but punishment and threats and punishment and more threats. So to me, that’s very damaging. So. That’s it.

      Ways of loving and parenting children were lost to countless family lines as a result of residential schools. Without proper love, care, attention and teaching, children grew into adults who didn't know how else to raise their own children besides what they picked up from the people who ran the schools. From there, trauma continues on through generations.

    2. You get whacked in the head in front of your peers in the classroom – that you’re stupid.

      Shame is a huge feature of residential schools that come to my mind. School officials relentlessly treated Indigenous children poorly, and attacked them if they did not behave or perform in a manner that was acceptable to them. Right at the start from entering the school, then having their belongings taken away, to being forbidden from speaking their language or practicing their culture, to having to pray for parents back home because they were “sinners,” as Elsie Paul had said, were all ways of making the children feel ashamed of who they are.

    1. The government isolated the people. Took away the lands and put people on reserves: “You stay there. You are not to go beyond this line. You are not to go into the white community.”

      This makes me think about who enforced these laws and the methods used to maintain this. The pass and permit system, not legislated by the Indian Act, held people on the reserves and prevented people from moving around like many families and communities had before settler colonial powers took over and enforced their regulations on Indigenous society.

    1. Title I requires employers with 15 or more employees to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities available to others. For example, it prohibits discrimination in recruitment, hiring, promotions, training, pay, social activities, and other privileges of employment.
    1. The ADA has three titles: Title 1 applies to employment, Title 2 applies to state and local governments (including public colleges and universities) and Title 3 applies to places of public accommodations (including private colleges and universities).

      ADA's three titles and sections

    1. In the online classroom, all disabilities – whether readily evident or not – are in fact invisible and hidden.

      I've never thought of it this way before, but it's so true! This is one of the greatest deficits with online learning. Aside from the loss of social presence, it's hard to monitor and support disabilities without real, intentional listening and support.

    1. The ADA intimidation claim and the § 1983 claim lack any legal foundation and “the result is obvious.” Karam, 352 F.3d at 1195. The ADA intimidation claim filed under 42 U.S.C. § 12203(b) had an outcome that was clear at the time it was filed. Section 12203(b) states: “It shall be unlawful to coerce, intimidate, threaten, or interfere with any individual in the exercise or enjoyment of, or on account of his or her having exercised or enjoyed, or on account of his or her having aided or encouraged any other individual in the exercise or enjoyment of, any right granted or protected by this chapter. ” (emphasis added). By its own terms, protection under the ADA against intimidation does not extend to a plaintiff's attempts to exercise rights granted or protected by the IDEA—the basis of K.S.'s claim in this case. See Morse v. N. Coast Opportunities, Inc., 118 F.3d 1338, 1343 (9th Cir.1997) (“Because [Plaintiff's] § 1983 complaint against [Defendant] is completely barred by the terms of the statute, we find that her claim is ‘unreasonable’ and ‘meritless.’ ”).

      OH MAN - you cannot base an ADA "intimidation" claim based on exercise of IDEA rights! - is this true for retaliation claims too??
