New San Antonio charter school to specialize in dyslexic education

For more than a decade, Girasol Margain faced an uphill battle navigating multiple public school systems in San Antonio with three children who would each eventually be diagnosed with dyslexia.

“My first child made it all the way through second grade, and one week before the end of the year, the teacher said they were recommending retention,” she said. “I didn’t even know anything was wrong before that.”

That fight to keep her son from being held back was the first of many, with barriers to obtaining a diagnosis, receiving proper support, and ensuring that teachers and specialists had the proper training.
