Poll Results In - RtI is the Winner

Statistical surveyImage via Wikipedia

Our most recent poll is finished. First a caution, our polls are not scientific measurements. They are one way we keep our finger on the pulse, but we do not pretend that we have a random sample of the country, or that our questions are bias-free or that a poll under the best conditions can be anything other than a good snapshot. That said, we do have some fun with these polls.

The question this time was: What Should Be Changed in IDEA? Here are the results:

1. Expand and Encourage Response to Intervention 43

2. Regulate Seclusion/Restraints 40

3. tie Raise the Bar for FAPE 36

3. tie Give Expert W Fees to Prevailing Parents 36

5. Assess Children with Disabilities at Instructional Levels for AYP 34

6. Place Burden of Persuasion on School Districts 33

7. tie Increase Transition Rights 27

7. tie Allow Arbitration and More Mediation 27

9. Restrict Comp Ed/Reimbursement as Remedies 19

10. Expand Role/Mission of OSEP 16

So you can see that it was very close. What thoughts do you have about the poll?

What changes would you like to see in IDEA? Any of those listed - or something not on the list? Remember I intend to forward your suggestions on to OSEP when the discussions about reauthorization heat up. So send me your ideas, and keep thinking about it.

Also what topic would you suggest for our next poll?
