    Ohio's Credit Flexibility Plan
    Concerned

    Last week we had a teacher inservice at our high school.
    The first half we discussed special education laws and what
    we are required to do.

    The second half we discussed Ohio's new credit flexibility
    plan. Basically...if a student wants to take a
    basketweaving class outside of school for Art class
    credit...they can (if the school approves the curriculum -
    and the teacher oversees the work done in basketweaving),
    but if students don't like it when the school denies them
    Art credit for basketweaving...they can appeal the
    decision. And the kicker is that the school pays for this
    basketweaving class.

    So...these basketweaving teachers don't have to accommodate
    for IEPs.

    It just doesn't make sense. Make the school's job
    harder...yet make students less accountable.

    I understand and like the idea behind credit
    flexibility...but in my opinion the execution is wrong.

    THIS MAKES ME LOL!
