My poor little special education girl, the girl who came to class every day, went to the learning center for extra help and did homework got her usual grade on the final--a 16.
This girl is a delight. She participates (although her answers are from outer space), she is friendly and always smiling. I hope both she and her parents saw her failure coming so the grade will not be a surprise.
The real educationally challenged people are the ones that told this kid, and ones like her to go to college. I don't know what high school she went to, but, I bet it was one with a supervisor who had to make AYP and got kids like this through by giving them answers. And then made themselves look better by sending these young people off to college, knowing full well that they will never succeed. They must know that what is in store for the child with the 70 IQ is heartbreak and disappointment. They've all gone through college and know what is expected to succeed. I've known administrators who have done this. These people make me sick.
