Am I required to have my child tested?
Federal law gives parents the right to refuse to have their child tested.
Because a student is in "Special Education" that means they are going to spend all day in a special classroom, right?
The IEP team looks at the needs of the student. If the student only needs to improve his/her math skills, then he/she would only spend time out of the classroom for math. The remainder of the day would be in the regular classroom.
Does my child have to go to one and only one special education classroom?
Sometimes a specialized classroom is more appropriate for a student; however, which classroom the student goes to and how much time he/she spends in that classroom depends upon his/her needs. As a parent, you are part of the team that makes that decision.
