Do you think there are some kids in special ed who don't belong there?

To qualify for special education services isn't intended to be simple. Certain criteria must be met. This is why differentiated instruction hasbecome so important. School failure/difficulty does not automatically mean special education.

Absolutely. Lack of effort and parental support should not be equated with a true disability. However, most LD students are not nearly isolated from fellow classmates. In fact, quite the opposite is true.

all children are special and schould be treated as such. if a child has been identified with learning challenges there has to be a better way than isolating a child from fellow classmates. special ed is over utilized term and place in some schools.

My son is the only child and now he doesnt stop talking and ask why all the time. I dont think he needs them and all kids pick up things at different paced. School expect are children to be brians in the womb and know everything by the age 3.

Yes i do. I'm actually going through a problem like this where the preschool has informed me my 3 yr ols at the time who now is 4 that he needs special needs classes. I had asked them why of course and they said its he's speech.

Sure, but that is a loaded question. What level of special eduction are you talking about? Do you mean that a learning support child needs to be in a life-skills class, or vice versa? And how many kids are not in special education that need to be?

Yes I do! I have a Special Education Endorsement, but no longer teach in the public school system. These children just think and learn differently; most do not have disorders. I am a tutor advocating for my students.

Learned helplessness is a pervasive disorder in Special Education. Students learn that they don't have to try because grades will be given to them. High school and college are then disastrous for these students.

There are lots of kids who are receiving services who do not need them. They may have needed them at one time but do not anymore or more often they never met the standard for Educational Need or they have reached grade level skill and could be done.
