We share evidence-based K-12 learning strategies that empower you to improve education.
I think people with speccial needs should be able to take them, because they are probley as smart as regular students but they just dont seem like it, but they should try to take it and see what happens.
I think that they should give the special needs students more time on all major tests. I dont think that they should make you not get your diploma just because of a test that you failed. And on tests i thing that they should give the special needs students items to use for example, a calculater.
I think kids shouldnt be left behind and should get the same privliges as other kids.
Allow student to test per thier learning styles including Special Education Students. These are merely assesments, not pass no pass tests, if we developed testing to the curriculum these students are learning then yes it would be just for their education and assesment processes. If we do not have special education assesments with thier accomodations it seems as if we are not serving these students, and discriminating against them to not take the test. Assesment are for tracking progress so officals can lead for change where it is due. This should include special education. If we are not assesing special ed. hopw are we to improve it? ANd to deny a student for not passing a test they were not taught to test for is what is unjust in the current education system. I stringly belive Arnie Duncan will do something about it as long as we all speak up and out about it. In other words do more than comment on Education Forums, actually contact your state officials :)
