|English: A special education teacher assists one of her students. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
The post was inspired by a footnote written by a Judge in a special education case. He said in K.O. v. New York City Department of Education 60 IDELR 102, n.1 (SDNY 01/26/2012): " Unfortunately, '[t]his opinion, dealing as it does with the IDEA and practices thereunder, is replete with acronyms.' M.H. v. N.Y.C. Dep't of Educ. (M.H. II), 685 F.3d 217, 223 n.l (2d Cir. 2012). One suspects that regulators and bureaucrats love such jargon because it makes even simple matters cognizable only to the cognoscenti and thus enhances their power at the expense of people who only know English. Nevertheless, acronyms have so invaded IDEA practice that this judge, like others before him, is pretty much stuck with having to use them."
