"three Unified middle schools failed to meet minimal standards in special education categories for the No Child Left Behind Act for the 2006-2007 school year." (There was also one High School) I am proud of my difficult child, no accomodations on state tests and he scored beyond advanced. anyway, the biggest fight I face/faced with school is the fact that difficult child learns a "different" way, and they are not willing to accept any different way. The following is also a quote from the superintendent. "Certainly this was not welcome news," he said. "It was disappointing but gives us a chance to analyze how to support (special education) learning. A student with special needs doesn't mean that person can't learn, it means they learn differently, and we have to provide it in a different kind of way." This is probably what every parent has been saying!!!
