Am I the only one who hates the educationalese learning plans sport? Why write "Transposes letters and numbers," rather than, "Test this child for dyslexia, NOW!" After all, who is motivated to dig to the bottom of: "Struggles with age appropriate behavior choices." I think a simple: "This kid loves a good scissors fight and won't stop biting the other students," will get a much more appropriate reaction from the parents.

It's a lot of sidestepping and polite language in the schools. All I can say is that it is not helping our students or our children one bit.
