PARENTS of the Axarquia girl with special needs accused of insulting and attacking her peers have responded to the parents who stopped taking their children to school, blaming her behaviour.
“It is completely untrue that they have tried to contact us to approach the situation of our daughter,” they claimed in a statement released by their legal representative. It continued: “Since 2011 we have been requesting adequate assistance for our child, who has special education needs and a disability.”
“We anticipated the consequences of a lack of special education, and the impact it would have on the rest of her peers. We are especially sensitive to the rights of other schoolchildren who have been the victims of the government’s apathy and carelessness.”
The parents claimed that the recommendations of experts, who had been able to deal with their daughter’s behavioural problems outside school, had not been taken by other professionals working in school. They said the situation had had direct consequences for the girl’s health and the wellbeing of their family.
“Whatever happens inside the school facilities is a responsibility of the management who must guarantee the integrity and wellbeing of all students, taking the necessary measures to do so.”
The statement claims that the girl’s companion was only provided a few weeks ago, and that the position had been occupied by three different people in the last month, with consequent negative results on the girl.
“They are stigmatising our daughter, our family, stating untrue facts, injuring our honour and our private lives. We will respond taking the legal action we deem appropriate,” finished the statement.
