Top comment-getting post was the one on the president's unfortunate joke, and my personal pick for comment of the week is this one, left by commenter Anna in response to a post on cafeteria hell: "This [touches] on something my own son has struggled with, and was mimimally addressed at meetings. The consensus was that my son did well in highly structured settings, but when left to his own devices (as at lunch), tended to get chaotic and more likely succumbed to 'groupthink.' There should be more attention paid to this very dilemma, as this is definitely one of those environments where children can and often do act out, and are 'set up' for failure. Come to think, this is the environment which has led to most of the disciplinary measures taken against him, and this article has inspired me to bring more attention to this at the next IEP meeting."
