What does this mean? It is true that Sudbury Valley is not able to
handle profound learning problems, such as retardation; and it is not
able to handle students who will not or cannot take responsibility for
their own behavior. However, I have heard of no Sudbury school that
does not welcome students whom other schools have labeled as "learning
disabled", when the only thing wrong with them is that they are
unhappy or uncomfortable in a traditional classroom.
