Special Education Gets Better
Y ou saw the movie that was shown
at the end of last year. Your teach-
er discussed the meaning of mainstream-
ing, and you knew that we were expand-
ing the Special Education Department,
When you came back to school you
expected to see more visibly handicaped
students, people in wheelchairs and stu-
dents with obvious learning disabilities,
but you didn't. Instead you heard of the
added courses and the new teachers as-
sociated with the Special Ed program.
You become aware of the individual
programs that were offered: the pre-em-
ployment preparation programs, where
seniors were released at twelve to receive
on-the-job training at work, the speech
and language program, which served
students who have difficulty in oral
communicationg the hearing handi-
capped program that was provided for
those students whose hearing is lost or
You also became familiarized with
the services that were offered to students
enrolled in the Special Ed Program. A
part-time school psychologist was as-
signed, and she was available for the
students. Another service provided con-
cerned individual health evaluations for
every special education student.
You realized that the scope of the
Special Education Department went be-

decided that special education students

ou go over your schedule for the
fifth time, and once again you ask,
"Why did I get the hardest teachers?"
You anticipate and dread all the home-
work and think of the time you'll waste
on it instead of on your favorite T.V.
But your disappointment doesnt stop
there. You think about the clubs you
wanted to join but now you won't have
time for them.
With your chin in your hand, you
stare into the corner and think of how
special it would feel to help retarded
children through Youth ARC, or how
exciting it would be to be a part of the
Pep Club and organize the class cornpe-
titions at the assemblies. You wonder
what it would be like as a member of the
Key Club, to participate in giving a
Thanksgiving dinner to a needy family.
You think of how much you could learn
from being on Stage Crew, and what it
would be like to be behind the scenes of
the production of Anne Frank, or how
beneficial it would be to receive on-the-
job training through C.O.E. or DECA.
You come back to reality and decide
that, even with the homework, you
could find the time to be a member of
one club, even twog and that's something
that would be worth missing that T.V,
The Dance Club practices every
day during fourth hour as are these
Practicing the violin, or whatever
instrument you prefer, is one of or-
chestras main requirements.
