Is your child an English Language Learner?
Does your child have an IEP, or 504 plan?
Does your child receive "Special Ed" services?
Does your child have any label, "EI," "ADHD," "Speech/Language," etc.?
Is your child demonstrating reading and math skill acquisition at HIS OR HER OWN PACE (did you know that most teachers with experience consider the third grade the "magic catch-up year?" Go ahead, ask them *why*.), regardless of what the required NCLB assessments demand?
Did you know that when a "school loses funding," it's not money the government takes away from a building, or a staff... it's money the government takes away from YOUR CHILD'S EDUCATION?
