Demand on special ed is growing %7C csmonitor.com

"In an era when special education is one of the fastest-growing areas in school budgets nationwide, this case symbolizes new questions about the responsibilities of classroom teachers" To what extent should schools take steps to help children with social and emotional disabilities particularly when children demonstrate strong academic capacities? Which of these kids belong in special ed and which just need extra help - from counseling to greater supervision on the playground?"

This dilemma is a tough one. To what degree should we all pay via school taxes for the costs to not only educate but also manage the social development of students. A very hard question indeed.
