I know a mom whose daughter has an IEP due to a learning disability and she is working on a class placement for next year. She feels a looping classroom is in her child's best interest due to transition issues and that her daughter's reading disability doesn't present typically so having the same teacher for two years would be academically beneficial. The district's Special Education director has told her that looping was unavailable to her child because those particular teacher's won't have students with IEPs. There will be four classes splitting 12 known students with IEPs and those classes will have classroom aides and push-ins from the Special Education resource teachers. The other grade level classrooms, apparently, will not have access to Special Education. So... since Special Education is not a destination... are the rights of this child being denied?
