    about Romney wanting Title I and IDEA funds to be portable.

    How on earth could this work? Not all kids with disabilities are the same. And schools get pools of money, not specific amounts tied to specific kids. One IDEA child might just have a mild speech impairment requiring 30 minutes/wk of speech therapy. Another might have multiple, severe disabilities and require a Life Skills classroom; speech, physical and occupational therapy; an orientation and mobility specialist; a personal aide for feeding and toileting; etc... But Romney would just hand each kid a thousand-dollar voucher and send them off to some for-profit school? This is absurd, and is making my blood boil.
