Posted May 29, 2004

Special Education classes some times lack qualified aides and often teachers do not have proper training for certain disabilities.There are some great teachers, but often they don't get the recognition they deserve. Too much emphasis is put on discipline and not enough on performance of students.Most seniors who have graduated from here have to take extra courses in college, because they can't read or lack math skills needed.
