Education should all switch to being online. That way no more worries about school shootings. Money saved on maintaining buildings can go to improving education. We could still do things like physical education and chemistry labs in person and the reduction of the need for room space would mean rooms could be rented here and there for those purposes.
And by being online the needs of individual students can be specifically tailored to. You wouldn't have to worry about there not being enough kids in an area, because area wouldn't be an issue. Back in high school there were classes I wanted to take but couldn't because there weren't enough kids who wanted to sign up. If all schooling was online I could've taken the classes I wanted.
I don't how the education system works where you live but to be honest something has to change. Where I'm in, the state pays somewhere around 30,000 dollars on Special ED kids unlike Regular ED kids they receive 10,000 dollars or something around that. That is around 20,000 dollars more being spent. Yet kids who have problems dealing with the environment there in are depressed because there not getting equal rights, they don't enjoy having the Special Need label since there are different levels of special needs but it's the same label, but who knows. Don't think some kids are in programs like these because there depressed or can't pay attention... It's the other way around... Kids are depressed and can;t pay attention because there thinking about the class they are in and how "special the are". Which means it will give them more troubles having a better chance for a good future. Every time teachers see that happening they don't take them out and put them back into mainstream. NO, they decide to keep them in the special ed class longer which pretty much makes it worst and a MUCH less change of having a good future at adult hood, and like I said the state are paying way more tax on the Special Education Children than the Mainstream.
Yes.... Yes... I know there is a difference between something you want and something you need. Still, Face it... Children who are going through these problems will never learn. Maybe some will deal with it... But those who will never be convinced of the gift there getting to suit their needs will like I said... Make everything worst even though the kids are bringing those concerns on themselves but the teachers should know better, so why keep trying? Especially while there are maybe millions of other options the Education System could try to make it both ways. For an example: The student is satisfied of the class there in, and still getting good grades. So the question is how? What can we do to enhance the education system so more kids with more needs can attend to mainstream classes? Think about how well the concerned children in special ed would do well in a complete regular ed environment and maybe still use an iep or 504s to survive. In fact why not give regular Kids accommodations as well? Especially for yearly testing and the state can spend less funding since more students can attend to the regular ed system. Maybe regular teachers can learn how to handle kids with learning disabilities just like the staff in special ed. Wouldn't that be nice? I know there a different levels of special need children and some may still need to be in a more smaller class or collaborative environment but that should be a different subject.
