I am on my 24th year teaching special ed in Kansas. Currently, I am teaching 3-5th grade students in a Categorical Applied Academics classroom. I teach in the largest district in the state. Anyway, I'm not sure what kind of questions you have about Kansas education, but know we do not have a governor that shows any respect to education at all. We are going a very frustrating stretch but I think many states are. Let me know if you have specific questions.

I really appreciate your response, and I understand your frustration regarding the government and education. Mainly, I would like to know what type of programs are predominately out there. I know that special ed. provides services and not programs, but here in California (at least where I teach) we have mainly pull out programs, not inclusion. I would also like to learn about the vernacular...for example, what is a "categorical applied academics classroom"? I have a mild/moderate credential, which I think you call an "adaptive" credential. We typically offer, through FAPE, services through a pull-out Resource program first, and then if students still need extra help they come to me in a "special day class" where they receive services in a pull-out program for most of the day. I understand and agree in concept with inclusion, but I also love having my own room and the chance to give small group intensive instruction to my students.
