Those poor kids do not have any negative karma, as I do not think that 
they ever have bad intentions though they do act on impulse and 
sometimes they get angry and act out of anger. 

I wonder how that works out with the soul of a retarded child. Are 
their souls normal people trapped inside a body that has limitations? 
is that how it happens when someone has a stroke or suffers brain 
damage? Are they inside their body understanding things as any normal 
person but unable to express themselves do to their physical 

With the retarded children there is not much that you can do as a 
substitute teacher. Since there is no interest in finding a competent 
permanent Special Ed teacher we can only follow rules and protocols.
