Another SPED?

Posted on: September 27, 2019

I can understand the appeal of knocking this effort down in the name of equality.

The fact is that we are not born equal. Most of us do not wish to worsen the inequality, so we do what we can to narrow gaps.

Mainstream schooling and education are critical to bridging gaps and providing stairways to progress. Those who cannot take these paths (like those with special needs) might get special help.

Might the brightest also have special needs? An academically brilliant child might not be as well-adjusted socio-emotionally. The same child might not get the support and challenges he or she needs in a conventional classroom.

A child prodigy is not always born into the best of circumstances. Who are we to judge such conditions, children, or help?

I am not for elitism. I am for empathy for kids with special needs, wherever they are on the continuum of development and ability.
