Subject: Teaching slow learners

I am a special education teacher and have been teaching (or attempting
to teach) the middle school students as an inclusion teacher.  It is
almost funny to realize that many of my sixth graders cannot do basic
math such as addition, subtraction, or word problems on a first grade
level.  How did they get to sixth grade if they are so far below their
level?????? I asked some of the teachers who  explained that either
the children are not allowed to be held back as special ed. students,
or that there would be no benefit to holding them back, or let them
move on and out of the school as they only spell trouble for the
teachers and administration.  My answere is that they need to be
placed in a resource room where they can go back to the very  basic
basics and move slowly giving them a feeling of confidence.
