Cost of special education: I think we should just take people guaranteed to be of low value to society and force them at a young age into labor camps.
"Mainstreaming" of students: Please get your time consuming, distracting, useless people out of my classes. I'm there to learn, not to listen to your Special Snowflake mumble incoherently. kthxbye.
Members who aren't supporters and take an opportunity like this to regurgitate their uninteresting and unsolicited opinions on issues not even a little bit related to the original off topic post: My opinion isn't polite enough to print.
You may also be interested to learn that I routinely kick puppies, take candy from babies, and force meat down the throats of vegetarians. Also, I run a hotline encouraging young women to get abortions.
/think I covered all my bases there.

You were doing so well, right up to the "members who aren't supporters"
part. What GARBAGE!! So now that we've been driven out of the classifieds, we can no longer participate in or start ANY THREAD?!? If you aren't a supporter you can't even have an opinion now?? Wow... Talk about an asinine statement.
: Well done.
*Some kids shouldn't be integrated. Sorry - they can't cope in "normal" setting, so why for them to try? They drag down everyone around them, and all of the sudden, everyone else now has to learn to cope with the "special kind" - is that fair? PC be damned. Special needs = special attention, which drives you out of a normal classroom setting. Sorry if that's harsh, but that's reality. Why should all suffer for the benefit of one?
*Suing YOUR public school is the ultimate in asinine. Ever wonder why you get a new operating referendum every other year? Frivolous lawsuits about "little Johnny" have plenty to do with that. But hell, there's no accountability in education, so go for it. When they run out of money, they just EXTORT the taxpayers for more. I can't understand FOR THE LIFE OF ME why taxes in my district continue to rise when we've lost 30% of the student population to the suburbs. Throw more money at it though - that'll bring 'em back. We have all kinds of schools for "special kids" - they're called charter schools and they're ENCOURAGED!! What's wrong with schools for special needs kids? They'll get the attention they need, be less disruptive to the kids who don't need additional distractions, and no one gets held back now because little Johnny is busy making fart noises, throwing spit balls, and kicking little Susie in the back of class because his Ritalin has worn off. Great.
The education system is broke.
