I have a student in my class who gets pulled out every morning for 1 1/2 hours for Special Ed, twice a week for speech, plus an English class now and then. On top of that we have our arts classes once a week – PE, dance, art, and music. Today we had no specials, and he only got pulled out for Sp.Ed. It must have been a really long day for him because we were all lined up walking down the hall to go to the buses with our coats and backpacks – along with the other 600+ kids – and about halfway there he said to me, “Teacher? Are we going to art class now?” Poor little guy!
