Re: “More lawsuits for Brooklyn charter accused of mistreating disabled students?

My grandson Jordan has attended Achievement First Crown Heights Elementary School for the past three years.  Jordan is a student with special needs, and contrary to the article’s stated headline, Jordan has been treated very well and his needs met.

Jordan has grown immensely since he started attending the school.  He’s more confident and talkative now than he ever was before.  He’s getting the academic support he needs to learn.  He loves his teachers, and they always have his best interest at heart.  The teachers and staff have given me the help that I need to support Jordan, and, most importantly, they have provided Jordan with the services he needs as well. Jordan is actually excited to go to school every day, and that’s the best part.

Achievement First Crown Heights Elementary has been a gift for my grandson.  I wish this article would have highlighted the many positive things happening at the school.
