Failing our Special Needs Students
Special education seems to be a hotbed issue among many parents in Hamburg. At a school board meeting this past fall, the Director of Pupil Services, Colleen Kaney-Staub presented a state report on special education. In short, it was reported that the dropout rate of our special education students is too high [click here for report]. I am not sure if this is the same report she summarized for the RSB, however, this report clearly shows that out of the special education students that entered the high school in 2005, almost 1 in 5 dropped out. If our special education students are dropping out, the question must be asked why? What is the point of getting these students so close to the finish line only to see them quit?
