Teachers play a pivotal role in placing students in special programs (special education and gifted, among others).  They now are prepared to advocate for their students.

Students have made inferences concerning judicial law through case studies. They have also analyzed digests of applicable federal laws and court decisions and have considered the differences between ideals and goals. They are now ready to apply their knowledge to placement decision-making processes for two young immigrant girls.
