Scruffy, the only data I could find on special ed kids was about 3 years old, so I will defer to someone who has access to more current data, but here is what DPI says. Special ed enrollment as compared to total enrollment in the three districts we have discussed; Fargo district 12.3%, Dickinson district 14.3%, Minto District 18.6%. The statewide average is 14.3%. Dickinson sits right on the state avereage. You still aren't getting me to agree with you on that point.
NDlionsfan, I'm not a big fan of the ITV system for anything other than specialized high level classes. For ITV or online classes to work, the students have to be very self motivated and independent learners. For most high school kids, other than your top students, who look for very specialized classes, I don't think they are the answer.
