A 16 page thesis paper discussing the rationale for investigating portfolios for assessing achievement and determining placement in special education. The best known aspect of the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (EAHCA) is the individualized education program (IEP) as a base from which to ensure that each student receives the kind of educational approach he needs. Because every disability is as different as the children possessing them, it is critical that the child receive education appropriate to his condition. As more school districts lean toward full inclusion and the least restrictive environment, proper placement becomes a greater issue. Many disabled children perform poorly on standardized tests, and the existence of a portfolio gives solid evidence for the true level of achievement the student has reached.

The manner by which both liberal and mechanical education still defines today's educational systems is established at very simplistic level within the overall academic community. Inasmuch as collegiate achievement, in and of itself, has remained a distant second to the pursuit of capitalism, one can readily argue that one's own pursuit of education merely for its intrinsic knowledge has not held fast through the passage of time, which clearly speaks volumes with regard to the way in which contemporary higher education is approached in different states. The writer discusses higher education as it relates to Mississippi and West Virginia. Bibliography lists 10 sources.
11 pages in length. With the student teaching populations of primarily Hmong and Hispanic individuals, there are several issues to be addressed, not the least of which include stereotypical attitudes, gender discrimination and social class oppression. The young men are typically between seventeen and nineteen years of age and have had significant dealings with the law; as such, their attitudes toward education in particular and social structure in general do not reflect well within the classroom. The student's concern appears to be twofold: 1) abandoning her own ingrained stereotypical issues so that her attention is equally divided among the classroom and 2) addressing the school's distasteful practice of shuffling otherwise unqualified individuals through the system as a means by which to obtain grant funds. The bigger picture, however, is assessing the importance and quality of education within America's school system, inasmuch as special education programs, such as the one in which the student is involved, tend to turn the instructor into more of a glorified baby sitter than one who imparts knowledge. The writer discusses social and economic oppression as they relate to furthered education. Bibliography lists 15 sources.
