Description

The article examines the growing size of the learning disability entitlement in the U.S. It deals with Mark Kelman, Stanford law professor and a pioneer of the radical Critical Legal Studies movement, who became interested in the issue after seeing the extra time that some students in law school were receiving on exams. He estimates that the cost of devoting special resources to the learning disabled amounts to roughly $9 billion a year. He concludes that even if identifiable learning disabilities do exist, there's no good reason for these children to claim government resources withheld from their foundering peers.
