Haven’t done one of these in a while. I’ve just been thinking a lot about this lately and wanted to vent out my frustrations and seek some advice from other educators.
I’m new to the field. I haven’t been around to experience much, but I feel like I’m pretty well connected (thank you Twitter and my PLN) and hear situations like this happening all around the country.
Is special education your dumping grounds for difficult students?
Does your district have an RTI or intervention model in place to support students that need a little extra help? Or do teachers just head straight to special ed with their complaints that the student “just can’t handle the level of class work.”
I would seriously love to hear how your particular school/district handles situations like this. Please e-mail at email@example.com or share in the comments.
