As an English teacher, I teach the textbook and any Knowledge that I think might be helpful to my visually impaired students. But, do they really need all the information on the book? Do they really need all the requried textbooks? I can see some students are really hard working and they are "good student" but I can also see they are not going to support themselves in the near future... Maybe, they are not getting what they need from the school?

I believe you do the best you can. We equip special needs students with the tools needed to be functional in society. Each will need to be assessed based on their basic needs. I would not limit the possibilities for them, that is not our decision, I do understand and think some of the same thoughts, but then I remind myself of all the amazing special needs people who went further than I expected.
