From the Paper:

"The primary rationale for the course presented is its adherence to a set of statewide standards which are contended to offer the prospect for an equalized advancement of special needs students. By designing curricula for the learning disabled which are intended to accommodate the attainment of proficiency levels parallel to those of the mainstream student population, it will be possible to channel the individual strengths of these pupils in a setting which emphasizes a commitment to achievement metrics."
