    I really want to read your paper but I am semi-illiterate when it comes to computers and I could not find your paper -perhaps you would be kind enough to give me detailed instructions on how to find it . That or e-mail it to me -my e-mail ain't that hard to find .
    If you know enough that kids with IQ's of 50 get 2-3 times the money of an 180 IQ then you realize the cruelty we must impose on the system -why pay all that money for a kid who will never hold any job , never graduate and be a burden on the system their entire lives .

    Because we will have "no child left behind" ....at the cost of letting no child get ahead.

    2-3 times? Try at least 10 times, with the data that is collected its 8billion for special ed, about 800million on gifted and talented. G&T is not even calculated in some states. Stat is cited in the paper.

    Forever ago when I was teaching they often grouped the gifted with the Special needs so they could get more funding -I see that is dead now .
    Z, if you are looking for work in Education take the time to get accreditted with special needs kids -they pay the asst.s in some of those classes a decent salary to do nothing but break up fights . Plus it'll get your foot in the door.

    I don't think I could work in Education from that angle, it would be more from a management/business development angle. I do not have the patience to deal with the schools in my area. :P
