Texas still denies benefits to learning disabled kids

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

In 2017, state lawmakers banned the cap of 8.5% children in special education, which had been in place since 2004. Then in 2018, the U.S. Department of Education found Texas had violated a federal law requiring schools to serve all students with disabilities. Federal administrators ordered Texas to create a plan to correct the problem, starting with identifying children who had been excluded and making up their missed services.

But in an investigation with the Houston Chronicle, Houston Public Media found that the effects of the cap linger, and children continue to be shut out of their right to special education.

Why do we label?

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

Read the post by prof Amanda Kirby in our link for today

Why do we seek a label or diagnosis? Does it help? Does it limit who we are? Does it define us? Does it explain? Does it allow us to understand how to look for more information? Does it allow us to have a more meaningful conversation with others?

Failure helps learning

Dyscalculia: News from the web:

New research from the University of Arizona discovered something about the link between learning and failure. To begin with, it’s already known that you’re not learning if you’re succeeding 100% of the time – that means the task is too easy. A little bit of failure means that something is just hard enough. (If you’re always failing, you may be in over your head).

Researchers found a precise answer to the link between learning and failure: the most favorable spot for learning something new is when you’re failing about 15% of the time.

Or in other words, you’re getting it right 85% of the time.
