But it’s not fair!

Several years ago I watched a recorded workshop on how to effectively teach an Elementary Class where some students had a disability.  He had some great ideas and he also talked about how resistant some teachers were to changing teaching methods. He said one of the complaints he gets is spending extra time and making accommodations for a few students isn’t fair to the rest of the class.
“Fair doesn’t mean everyone gets the same thing.  Fair means everyone gets what they need.”
