I agree to an extent, but the majority of these students do not even need to be in special or remedial classes. They are boys, they act like boys, they get told they are bad people, and then they get medicated.
The majority of boys and minority of girls now are in a scholastic environment geared away from their strengths and these strengths are ignored in favour of equality.
Years ago we were taught if a child was uninterested they either did not want to learn, or were not being taxed, so they were made to learn, and some floundered, some flourished. Now floundering is the norm and levels of achievement have been set with that as the benchmark.
