Why her son was exempt

I had an hour conversation with Nancy from Washington (previous post). Her son is also very disabled, although not as severely as my children. It appears that the services given to her son are very inferior to those afforded to my daughter.

She fought the exam by claiming that it simply was not designed to assess her son. How do you assess reading when in fact you never even tried to teach him to read? How do you assess math when you never even tried to teach him math? Also, the basis for testing assumed, in writing, a basic comprehension. So her argument, was simply that you should assess and hold the school accountable, but the test you are giving does not do that.

Food for thought.
