Question: If students with remedial needs are grouped together, will they succeed in remediating their needed skills?
Answer/Quote: “If students are grouped for a remedial experiment, their sense of themselves may be so negative that the experiment is bound to fail before it starts.” Reviewed by W.R.P.
Comment: An interesting observation. If they are self-perceived as failures, they are bound to fail because they expect to fail. Never thought of this before. RayS.
