Teach Life Skills At Home
This may not belong in this category, but as the mother of three son`s with disabilities, I believe teaching Life Skills in school is a waste of valuable learning time. Our children only have so many years in school and most will take a litle longer to learn things than "normal" children. I would rather have my son`s being exposed to the concepts of reading, writing and math than to spend their days learning to count money, sweep floors and use the toilet. They may have trouble comprehending these subjects, but life skills I can teach at home.
