Having the chance to teach more life skills may help students down the road.
"One thing I wish I could change is more flexibility in what is taught. For example, special education students (and actually most middle schoolers!) often need more character education-based and life skill lessons that would benefit them in both school and with their peers. Because of how the curriculum is structured in public schools, it leaves little time to ever focus on developing those important character traits and life skills." — CH
