After reading this post by Nirvi Shah, California Father commented tersely:

I guess no one in the NCLD teaches. Keeping schools accountable by teaching children with disabilities to the same mind-numbing, spirit-killing tests we subject general ed kids to is doing them no favors. NCLD should get off the “accountability” band wagon and focus on individual student needs not the arbitrary mandates of ignorant politicians.

It just ticks me off when organizations like the National Center for Disabilities and Easter Seals whine because, in their minds, special ed kids aren’t getting tested enough. Hello! Parents and teachers of special ed students don’t want their kids to be measured with the same tests gen ed kids take.

One Belle Hall Elementary School parent, Sarah Johnson, felt so strongly about this issue that she filed an unrelated complaint in the summer with the federal Office of Civil Rights. She said it was discriminatory to require mentally unable students to take the state exam when physically unable students are exempt.

Just wait until she gets a load of what Arne Duncan has in store for us.
