‘Bottom of the barrel’

Print More

The article “Lower scores, more dropouts” confirmed what we teachers at the elementary level have observed—that our “special” students are not given a special education. In fact, they are at the bottom of the education barrel.

The Board of Education—despite lawsuits, articles and exposés such as your own—seems totally unconcerned about the plight of the learning disabled.

Thank you for your article.
