Correct me somebody, but if a child is labeled with a disability and is considered in special education then the IEP dictates so to speak their goals w/ accomodations and modifications, etc. So if a child is being instructed with all these guidelines in place and they are failing, then why shouldn't they be treated as non labeled peers. I understand that the process as far as learning the material needs to be modified, don't get me wrong. But isn't it unethical to "pass" somone who is failing despite intervention. I would hope that there was some talking before a child reached the failure point.
