AHHH! Three hours of "you failed your kids."
Let me see if I have this right. You give me 31 children - 10 with learning disabilities. I love them ALL. don't even mention the ESL kids - and it's ALL my fault that they didn't make growth. They passed, but they didn't make growth...??? ARGH!!!!!

A few years ago I had a class like that. I had a class full of students with learning disabilities, speech problems and discipline problems. I had several who didn't pass but they all made growth in the double digits. Of course that wasn't good enough.
