Time to vent.

I am so tired of the jokes that I receive for being a Special Ed. major. People are so ingorant to the career. It disturbs me the comments I have heard about my major. The ironic part is there isn't a certain age range of people who make the rude comments. I have had young and older (like my dad's age) crack 'jokes' about it. Personally, these jokes are disrespectful. Having someone in my family AND knowing that I will be teaching students with lower abilities, I take offense to the comments.
Go ahead accounting majors, learn your numbers. Marketing majors, learn how to sell. Computer Engineering majors, learn your software. Do YOUR business and let me do mine. We are all here for reasons. No major is better than the other. Special Education is not equivalent to easy or less stressful. What are you going to do if your child has special needs????????? Who will be cracking the jokes then?
