Spread the Word to End the Word Campaign
A message from L.D.S.B.'s Special Education Program Coordinator Sue Burnett:
The word "retard" is still being used and although many people might say, "We don't mean it that way", it is offensive and disrespectful to people who have an Intellectual Disability. Youth, through Best Buddies and Special Olympics, initiated a "Spread the Word to End the Word" campaign several years ago. The campaign is intended to get schools, communities and organizations to rally and pledge their support to help create communities of inclusion and acceptance for all people. Language affects attitudes and attitudes affect actions. We would like to invite and support all local schools to join the campaign to pledge to stop saying the R-word!
