Mom: My Autistic Son 'Is Lost in a Sea of Standards' at School
Here is an open letter from the mother of a young boy with autism who is finding school in Louisiana harder than ever because he is being evaluated on standards -- the Common Core State Standards -- that he cannot meet. And the progress that he does make doesn't count. This was written by Rebecca Ellis of Mandeville, a city in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana, about her son Jackson. She is the assistant director of a regional resource center for individuals with disabilities and their families.
