The needless struggles of struggling readers: Professional preparation and expertise
from By: Howard Margolis (commentary)
Once in special education, struggling readers, such as students with dyslexia or mild-to-moderate cognitive impairment, often make little or no progress in reading and writing. They often regress. This doesn't make sense. After all, they have smaller classes taught by special education teachers. They have highly personalized Individualized Education Programs that meet all their academic, physical, and social-emotional needs. They have case managers who closely monitor their progress, and when warranted, quickly call a meeting to make program adjustments. It sounds flawless. It's not.
