    Law passed so that all students may go to school
    In Rhode Island a law was passed that mandated that all children must go to school. I believe that this benefited all students in having to go to school. It also changed history for the better.

  • Inclusion

    Inclusion
    Inclusion should be set for students that are not mentally handicapped. When I was a student I was placed in inclusion and I couldn't keep up with the other students. The teacher was going to fast and I wasn't able to retain any information. I had told the teacher that I needed him to slow down but he just kept going. With have the two teachers in the class didn't help me.

  • No child left behind act

    No child left behind act
    This act was also signed by President George W. Bush. This act held schools accountable for how children were learning. It would also penalize the schools with low scores. This law made schools ended up falsifying scores. I believe this act is one of the worst ones, in my personal experience. Children do not always learn the same way. Some kids cannot be judged by the way they take exams.
  • Inclusion

    Inclusion
    When asking the teacher to slow down only made him to go even faster. That year I did horribly in school. It took everything in me not to give up. I knew exactly what I needed and I knew how to advocate for myself. So the following meeting that I had for my IEP I asked to be placed in a smaller class. I only had dyslexia, I can only imagine the students that have something more in that class. Equality isn't always equal it sometimes make a student fall behind.
