The law was created to protect these children that can do and were not being
taught because people thought of them as being retarded. There are many of
these students that can and will function but need to have some
modifications. I know someone that was on the committee when these laws were
put into place and she said the laws were not the laws that were recommended.
There are so many children that are still falling through the cracks and
just because their scores are not in the right range they can't receive help
or services. It just needs to be looked at again and the regular kids right
need to come into play to. They had rights for an appropriate education
without being looked over because some children can't keep up. The reason
for some of the problems in school today is because many children are not
challenged because the teachers are so stressed out trying to accommodate all
the various children's needs.
