Disability or not, if you can't meet the requirements to get your art degree..........YOU DON'T GET AN ART DEGREE.

OKay,  You're retarded.

Well I don't give a fark and the whole public bullshiat game of "oh we should be sensitive to the handicapped" can go to hell.  Oh, you want to be a fireman?  You're in a wheelchair!  What?  Discriminatory?  Equal opportunity?  Dude fark off, we need someone who can drag people out of buildings.  You can do that?  Well do you know who can do it better?  Someone with legs!

If you can't meet the requirements for a degree, you can't have a degree.  I don't care if you have some sort of mental disorder; you don't have the abilities that a degree says you have (even if the impression they give is usually wrong anyway), and the only thing giving retarded people degrees would do is teach us to not hire anyone with a mental disorder because their credentials are probably effectively falsified.

DrewCurtisJr: Rocky Mountain admitted her even though college officials knew her SAT score for math placed her in the bottom 5 percent of all students, the lawsuit said.

There's the problem right there.


Sort of.  I take it back a level further and say she shouldn't be applying to schools that have gen. ed. or departmental minimum requirements.

Don't want to do math?  Don't pay to go to a place that requires it.

She'll do fine. She'll whine her way into her degree, then she'll whine and brownnose her way into a job doing social work or something, and then she'll work her up the ladder, whining and taking advantage of every single thing she can exploit, and then, because of her hardships and her "handicap", she'll treat everyone in her life like crap, because she's had it so haaarrrrdddddd.

Meanwhile, the guy who just gets up and goes to work every day with no thanks and no special exemptions---he's been laid off. he has to go down and have an "interview" with the nice lady at social services about why he doesn't try harder to get a good job, so that he can get his unemployment. And you know who he has to report to? That's right.........

ThurmanMerman: I actually had some sympathy for her at first.  And then I read FTFA:

The school has offered Valdez extended time on exams, permission to record lectures, free tutoring and note taking, and to substitute the second of the two required math classes with a course on logic, Forsythe wrote in a court filing Monday.


And now I'm in the "shut up and do the work" camp.


And it's not just a tutor who's a grad student, the tutor is a farking professor with special qualifications for teaching those with disabilities. On top of that, as someone already posted, she could fulfill the requirements with two incredibly easy classes. Seriously, Math for Elementary School Teachers? How difficult could that possibly be, especially with a tutor?

The school is bending over backwards. She needs to quit her damned whining.

Degree or not, the Internet is forever, and I sure she'll have no problem getting a job when her future employer GISs her and sees she's a sue happy malcontent with:

And if she weren't admitted to the college, she would have sued under the ADA.

Valdez's disabilities include Asperger's syndrome, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and dyscalculia, which is a mathematics learning disability, her attorney, Donald Harris, said Tuesday.

Bwhahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Oh god lady you and your parents have been suckers somewhere along the way. If you really had all that wrong you would be a farking basket case no matter how much drugs they pump into you. My bet is she probably has dyslexia or dyscalculia which lead to poor performance in school which lead to all those diagnoses trying to "fix" her. This is the perfect storm of helicopter parenting and special snowflake meeting reality.

Sadly, the math requirements for an art degree do not accurately represent the importance of math to the visual arts. Perspective, anamorphic art (e.g., those cool sidewalk drawings that look 3D from the right angle), geometry in general. Escher and Dali are to of the most famous modern artists whose work was deeply mathematical. Hannah "Montana" Valdez can go suck eggs.

Shut up and take your math classes, you little crybaby. They'll make you a better person.
I don't even know why kids can get high school diplomas without passing beginning algebra. You spend 12 farking years in school, you ought to be able to solve a goddamned quadratic equation.
