A Step Toward Helping Classroom Teachers

June 09, 2002

Re "Tailor Teaching to the Child," Editorial, May 26:

Your editorial caught an often-omitted detail in terms of children's learning deficits--the teachers who refer children for batteries of tests. The insinuation is that classroom teachers are not qualified to make these decisions.

I hope Mel Levine's program will sharpen teachers' abilities to discern and analyze these learning deficits. Perhaps Levine's training will lend credibility to the classroom teacher. The next step would be to increase the number of school psychologists. I wish there were a matching $7 million for schools to carry out these ideas.
