    this is my DQ 1: What are some factors that contribute to the disproportional representation of minority students in special education classes? Explain your answer. here is the scenerio and the question # 1 I need to answer:Riley Behler, a third-grade teacher at the Martin Luther King Elementary School, has been asked to see the principal, Erin Wilkerson, after the students leave. Dr. Wilkerson explains that the school is implementing a full inclusion program in which children with severe disabilities will be fully integrated into general education classrooms. Because Behler had been a nominee for the district’s teacher of the year award two years ago and singled out for his outstanding classroom skills, Wilkerson had decided that Behler would be a likely choice to be a part of the school’s first attempt at full inclusion. “What this will involve, Riley, is two students with severe disabilities. One is a child with Down syndrome who has developmental disabilities (characterized by severe delays in the acquisition of cognitive, language, motor, and social skills). He has some severe learning problems. The other child has normal intelligence but is nonambulatory, with limited speech and severe cerebral palsy.” Dr. Wilkerson advises Behler that while the district had mandated the implementation of full inclusion, she is asking for teachers to volunteer in her school. “If you are willing to be a part of this program, you will have a full-time aide with a special education background. In addition, Bill Gregg, the inclusion specialist, will assist you with instructional plans and strategies. What is important is that you prepare the students in your class and the parents so that a smooth transition can be made when these students come into your class in January, in just two and a half months. If you agree to do this, I’d like you and Bill to map out a plan of action and give it to me in two weeks.” This scenario has been played out in schools across the country in recent years. 1. What should Behler and Gregg’s plan of action include? I wrote this and i am still 100 words short: According to chapter five some of the factors that contribute to the disproportional representation of minority in special classes are the following: One I read is Poverty, another one is Lead Poisoning because it can create problems for children such as reading and learning disabilities, speech and language disabilities a third one is over referrals. Another one is Unexplained Issues. Another one is racial bias and another one is assessment issues. I say they all are important factors but in my opinion I choose lead poisoning because it can create problems in children's learning and it can hurt their futures.
