I'm probably picking a scab off of a wound here, but I've been subbing for sped in 7 different school districts for a couple of months now, and working every day. One thing I've noticed is that the sped classrooms are generally located in dark corners of the basement, are often tiny and cramped, and that they don't have the bells and whistles that the regular classrooms often do. My kids' school is well equiped with smartboards in every classroom, but you guessed it, not in the resource room. I don't have to ask why this is--I can guess, but I resent it highly for the kids, who could benefit so much from having better materials available to them. Have any of you noticed this too? It seems terribly discriminatory.
