Maryland has far to go in testing and teaching special education students [Commentary]
The Baltimore Sun gets high marks for uncovering the shameful fact that Maryland ranks first nationally in improperly excluding students with disabilities from taking the leading national test of reading ability ("Md. excluded large number of special-education students in national test," Nov. 16).
