What do you think are the greatest strengths and weaknesses of the current special educational system in America??
Your instructor wants to know what YOU think.
We'll be glad to comment on YOUR answer.
here's a few that I came up with:
Strengths: all students are entitled to public education; the ability to accommodate students in classrooms
the weaknesses:not enough funding; the quickness to place students on medication; not enough patient & experienced teachers; not enough evaluations done
what do you think??
It's been 15 years since I've been in a classrom, but I can see that nothing much has changed. (I taught regular ed but had many special ed kids in my regular social studies classes.)
Another strength -- students are taught at their own level and their own pace. The teachers follow the students' Individual Educational Plan.
I agree with your analyses -- although I feel that yearly evaluations are probably enough.
Thank you for your feedback Ms. Sue. I appreciate it very much!!!
You're very welcome.
