The goals of RTI, however, do not include increasing the number of students in individualized special-education programs or extending their participation in those programs. Rather, RTI is aimed at keeping students with learning disabilities on pace with their peers and, when special education is warranted, minimizing its longevity. In short, “the goal is to keep as many as possible at grade level and out of special education,” Keimig said.
According to Keimig, roughly 4 percent of students in the R-7 school district struggle with some type of learning disability, a general term for the variety of orders that make it difficult for students of normal intellectual capacity to learn.

What happened to the 10% that they had just a few years ago? Minimize special education? They just don’t want to help those kids. We all know that.
