this ain't livin': One of These Things Is Just Not The Same: Lumping Kids With Different Needs Together

There’s a strong desire to standardise education in the United States, to make it one-size-fits-all, to promote a single unified theory of educational experience and methodology, and it just doesn’t work. Different student needs are not a bad thing, something to be punished, something to medicate students for in order to force them to conform. They’re just needs, and they need to be identified and addressed rather than shoved under the table and ignored. In a school system truly focused on improving opportunities for students and addressing educational disparities, we wouldn’t be glomming students in large, amorphous groups and then being surprised when many of them don’t perform well.
