It's no joke or laughing matter , I,ve seen where the system place these young children in these special ED
programs who don't need it at all , there was this boy name Harold they told him he
was a RETAR.
put him in this program and he zap through it in flying colors , had him and parents thinking he was slow/ had a problem / Retardation
when he was above his grade level/ smart/ GPA above and beyond his class and age
could be an high honor student but was retarded !!..... NOt true
Then here's what they said this Harold is the smartest RETARDED kid they ever seen.....
Do the math
did he belong or was he strip from perfection and top honors ???
Brother Rich, I'm not denying there isn't some truth in Hyperkill's post.
As a former educator, I've seen BOTH sides of this, though.
YES, there are many Black children put in "Special Ed" who DO NOT need to be there. --Parents who are involved and invested in their child's education will become "educated" themselves on just what their child's academic strengths and weaknesses are.
And, YES, there are many who DO need to be there.
