Special education reforms would likely include classes taught in pairs


Middle-school students are sensitive about appearances, so Lorna Campbell worried when her son, Robbie, started at Eckstein several years ago.



In elementary school, Robbie was pulled out of class for extra writing help because of his learning disability. At Eckstein, Robbie was enrolled in one of the most inclusive special-education programs in the district. 
 
Instead of signing up for English classes just for special-education students, Robbie, who struggled with the fine motor skills needed to write and had trouble converting his thoughts to the page, was enrolled in a general-education language-arts class taught by a pair of teachers.
