Is it realistic to have 100 percent of children in public school reading and doing math at their grade level?
Asked at Checkers, 2300 La. on February 14, 2005
“I think it is a realistic goal for regular education, but not for special education.”
“I don’t know if it is realistic right away, but it is possible if they start a new program when the kids are in kindergarten. Then they can achieve that goal.”
“I think it’s unrealistic. I think it’s a good goal, but not a practical one.”
“No, because all kids develop at a different level.”
