Overloaded by paperwork, testing, and the sheer numbers of kids before them, teachers lack the wherewithal to help disabled, difficult and disruptive students - especially those who come to school with problems rooted more in the world around them than in anything inside them. They must, for sheer self-preservation, move those kids out of their classrooms. Off they go into special ed, and, not infrequently, that's just the beginning of a long journey through program after program in school after school. When you don't know how to help a kid, the way you help yourself and your school is to make her someone else's problem.

In other words, education has become triage.

- Monika Bauerlein and Clara Jeffery, in Mother Jones
