How Budget Cuts Affect Special Education Programs
National Priorities Project (blog)
One way that many school districts attempt to cut costs in special education is by placing special needs students in mainstream classrooms.
Sarah Ambrose's insight:

Do you think more schools are trying to place special education students in mainstream classrooms to cut down on cost? Do you think this is fair? Why/why not? If you were a special education student, and a school was going to place you in mainstream classroom to save money, how would this make you feel? Do you think this would help or hinder your learning?

Sarah Ambrose's insight:

This website is a great way for all students to consolidate their understanding of numeracy. This website also benefits students with a learning disability that may be working below their year. When some students think of maths they think about textbooks, pencils, calculators and how boring it is, this site is visually appealing and interactive and is a great tool for students to move away from their workbooks.

Suggested by a wonderful teacher, this resource is a useful website to engage students and keep them entertained in the field of mathematics whilst informing.

This is a great example of a way to engage students that have struggled with basic mathematics from primary school as they able to go back and revise.

Class,

for those of you either wanting to revise on mathematical practices or are struggling with basic math principles this is a sight to get your head into gear.

Enjoy.
