Students with severe cognitive disabilities have not been effectively helped to be contributing members of their communities during their high school career or afterward. This article discusses the recommendations of the Collaboration to Promote Self-Determination that would create a more student focused high school experience.

The focus of high school is still on the idea that all students will go to college, even though a large number go directly to the work force. How do you feel about this issue.
