    This is my justification of why I rank the above the way I do. I rank number one a 9 because that is what I thought it should be. I ranked number 2 a 3 because that I feel should be ranked at. I ranked number 3 a 1 because I thought it was the most important one.

    Although # 2 is certainly ideal, I don't think it's attainable.

    The danger in # 5 is that truly learning disabled children may go without services because they have a different ethnic background.

    Somewhere in that list should be foreign language study. We have a school in our city that teaches in both English and Spanish -- so that both groups of kids are included and learn a foreign language.

    And don't forget celebrations of all cultures' holidays and special events.

    ok cause I was not sure if I was missing a number somewhere.

    You did not list all of the choices for that answer, if you read the assignment it says the "two" lists on page 7. At the very top of the page there is another list to look at.
