Do you think learning disabilities exist and they should be addressed or do you think the term learning disability is a euphemism for "stupid"? I think learning disabilities exist , but I don't think the schools do a good jobs of addressing the needs of students with learning disabilities. The educators of public schools and even college really don't do a great job of accomodating the needs of the students other than just giving them extended time on the test. That is why I am a strong advocating of homeschooling and making no further investments in our public schools, since homeschooling will do a much better job of addressing and pinpointing the students weaknesses of a student particular approach to a student's problem. Even if the teacher cares about developing learning methods that would better fit the needs of a student with a "learning disability" , it would be impossible for them because since a typical classroom is reaches about 30 people and you cannot possibly apply each individual learning method that best suited for each individual student. 9 times out of 10 , when you are home-schooled , it is usually a one-to-one interaction between the student and the parent, therefore the needs of the students are addressed more efficiently . That way students are less likely to be labeled "stupid" by home-school educators vs. the teachers in public schools , since public schools teachers don't truly have time to understand why a certain student has a hard time learning the material in the class and therefore they placed the student in a lower level class.
