Which, of course, means no special help for any child, because special help by definition is inequitable.

are we still in Jr High?

Amazing, level of contribution(?) from our 'professional' educators here.

Since (4) of our local school districts have been on strike this yr, I suggest the teachers should strike because they are required to do something other than teach. Why don't the striking teachers offer solutions? They were trained to teach (Presumably).

Electricians and plumbers are not trained or paid to be social workers and disciplinarians.
They are trained to do a specific job, and would strike (or better yet... refuse) if their expected deliverables were out of their profession. I expect skilled workers would just QUIT and go find another gig that suits their skillset and desired occupation. Teachers should have that latitude and available options. If they want to teach... empower and enable them to TEACH!

The results would be amazing. (and so would the ACT scores)

It seems to me that posters who think all the solutions are simple rarely have any actual solutions.

Beats NO SOLUTIONS for 30+ yrs career

There are many viable solutions.

Start by taking core deliverables (teaching). and Just Do it

Some will fall behind.
That's expected, as it is with any process.

So... for them... you do it again. (And again)

When the system won't deliver.... Plan B (Outside of the 'normal' protocol). That would be fewer, but very manageable.

We have a brigade of trained professionals to do this (special instruction).
The rest of the pack will be busy blazing new trails (for them).

If the school system is too confining for the advanced learner... there are readily available options.

The USA is not unique in the problems it has educating. It is somewhat unique in providing active and successful solutions. (Crickets).
