The Amish

Truth time! When I was a little girl my mother taught special education out in farm country. At the time special ed as new and there were bugs. One of those bugs was that the testing didn’t take into account cultural differences. That lead to a lot of Amish children being put into special education classrooms. They weren’t developmentally delayed, they just didn’t know how to answer the questions. Anyway, this meant that many of Mom’s students were Amish. I remember days visiting the farm and that big kitchen with honey colored wood everywhere.

I also happened to watch a documentary on Rumspringa which is probably the saddest thing I’ve ever seen and it partly played into this story.

The entire series comes out in 2 weeks and it’s on sale now for 99¢. The price goes up on release day.
