I don't disagree. But I was not talking about identified kids. I'm tlaking
about kids who have managed to get trhough, even in a very good system like
Arlington VA, without being able to function at the requisite level in one or
more subjects. It usually is a reading deficit - the kids may be able to do
math and may be quite verbal, but cannot read at an appropriate level (and here
I do not mean deconding - reading aloud, but even reading for understanding).
