Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Since the inception of special education in this country, many educators have elected to serve those children described as mentally retarded, emotionally disturbed, learning disabled, etc., ..• This investigation was aimed at those who are low functioning intellectually. Numerous such students have been identified, labeled, and placed in special programs outside of the regular classroom setting. The problem lies in the fact that the majority of special educators have blindly accepted specialized programs as a panacea to an ever-present dilemma. In the face of educators' suggested inability to deal effectively with "low IQ" students, they have been frequently segregated from their normal peer group and placed in an isolated setting where they receive instruction along with other ''low IQ" students.
