Hi Kathy,

In my state, the scheduling is usually done by the principal of the school.
I would like to ask you about your special education class. What
classification are these students? LD (learning disabled- for our
international readers), MiMH (mildly mentally handicapped)? The national
IDEA, in particular, article 7 would probably consider such a class illegal
as it would be too restrictive. Usually special education students are
mainstreamed into special area classes with the other students.Our special
education committee always puts the child in a special area class unless
their behavior or disability prevents them from functioning well in this
