Test requirements will frustrate disabled
To the editor:
In response to the story "MAP test changes to affect those students with disabilities": At the risk of sounding like Dr. Phil, what are the schools thinking? How does one live with oneself after telling a kid with dyslexia that he can't have the test questions read to him or her? If the kid in question can't read, how is he supposed to take the test? We have similar situations in California. Was Uncle Teddy out sick the day they taught unintended consequences in law school? Today's frustrated student is tomorrow's angry job seeker.
