After criticism, teacher with Down Syndrome gives lesson of respect
Débora Seabra, 36, is the country's first Down Syndrome educator. Faced with news of her conquest, the judge of the Court of Justice of Rio de Janeiro (TJRJ) Marília Castro Neves made a post challenging the teacher's ability to teach, in a text loaded with prejudice. The teacher, then, spoke on Monday (19) in a letter stating: "I teach children to have respect for others."
The posting, by the private group investigator on Facebook for magistrates , said that she was listening to the Voice of Brazil on the radio, and, hearing that the country was the first to have a teacher with Down Syndrome, was indignant. "Well, I thought, cool, are the social inclusion programs?" I asked myself, "What does this teacher teach to whom?" In response to the prejudiced statements, the educator posted a handwritten letter in social networks, affirming everything that teaches its students. According to her, education, respect and tolerance for differences come first. "What I think is the most important of all is teaching to include children and everyone to end prejudice because it is a crime. Whoever discriminates is a criminal!" He concludes. Read the letter in its entirety:

After repercussion, the Brazilian Federation of Down Syndrome Associations issued a repudiation note regarding statements made by an authority public, requesting that the Justice analyze the occurrence. "Texts of this nature clearly denigrate the magistracy and thus must be strictly determined by the competent bodies."
Advisors to the judge have not yet expressed their views on the veracity of the post. This is not the first time that Marília Castro makes controversial declarations. Last Friday (16), she stated that councilor Marielle Franco (PSOL), shot to death in Rio de Janeiro, "was engaged with bandits."
