Rhee Proposes 'Differentiated Learning' Program

District Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee says the District can reduce the high cost of special education with a program that would keep more disabled students in the same classroom as regular and gifted students.

The so-called differentiated learning program would tailor lessons for the students. She's proposing that the program be tested at West Elementary School in Northwest Washington before being installed across the city. Rhee says the school system would hire a private special-education school to run the program.

The currently spends about $137 million on private school tuition each year for about 2,400 children whom it cannot serve in the public schools. The Washington Post, ABC 7 News
