So, according to your reasoning....this make her mom and I 'stupid'?

And 'real world', how do you define this? I am actually REALLY curious.

My wifes teaches disadvantaged kids and kids with all sort of disabilities, Here they are mainstreamed as best they can. In fairness your critism of my comments rant really fair, I was merely dealing with the majority of kids. Those that need help or special attention should get that not only at home but also from properly resourced schools. Tax is never wasted on education or kids
