After reading rezina's comment, I wondered what connection he/she has to the special ed world. I'm a community college educator and a parent of a young adult who graduated from PPS with a regular diploma. While rezina raises important questions about funding and ensuring that our kids are able to succeed at the highest level possible, I took a great deal of offense at the insensitive comments about parents and the comments about kid's behavior in Sp. ed. that assumes these kids just need more discipline. Give me a break! I'm sure there are a few parents with kids in Sp. ed. who fit this description, but there are always a few parents like that in any demographic. Parents are not the problem; there is not just one simple solution to this huge issue.
