No. My son also has a learning disability so I am empathetic in this regard.
I am not callous. It is just that in my experience ( in the course of my job
I read through scads of IEPs, psych evaluations, educational assessments etc
from a number of different school districts), the students who are exempted
from assessment are marginalized. If the schools don't have to "count them"
they focus on the kids that will count, possibly. This is ESPECIALLY true of
the kids with near average intelligence. Long before NCLB the schools were
content to put bright children with LD--or even just with lower than the
community standard socioeconomic status-- in low level classes.
