    High school yearbooks that labeled special needs students mentally retarded recalled
    By Dylan Stableford | The Lookout 
    A Texas high school has recalled copies of its yearbook after special needs students were described as "mentally retarded" within its pages, angering teachers, students and their parents.
    An introduction to the "Special Education" section read, "Some of the disabilities the students in the Special Education Program have are being blind, deaf or non-verbal" and described two students as "both blind and deaf, as well as mentally retarded."
    I don't beleive there was any requirement to label any students in this manner...

      They could have just said Special Education and just left it at that.
