Where Special Ed Classes Span 6 Grades

HAMPTON, Va. — Before school began earlier this month, Sadie Boone stopped by Langley Elementary to visit her son's classroom.
She was shocked that her 8-year-old, who has autism, was in a classroom with students ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade.
Boone is one of at least three Hampton parents who have filed complaints with the state's education department. They are decrying the district's decision to place children with special needs in classrooms spanning six grade levels without parent notification or input.
