You know, George, to help us along with you...
...I'd be much more comfortable with a thread discussion that could make a
difference and then *move on* to your concern. Rather than your SBER and LD
(your: impact of standards-based educational reform on learning disabled
students), I'd prefer a more foundational discussion of *evaluation and/or
assessment based educational reform* (EBER/ABER). After a good airing of views
there, we might better *move on to EBER/ABER and LD.
Doesn't your SBER and LD perspective beg the dilemma you intend to discuss? How
to *move on*, then??? ;-} rap.
