  1. Direct Instruction achieves the same results without the extra social services (not that the social services are a bad thing, but they’re very vulnerable to spending cuts and some are not proven to deliver on their claims, or do so only marginally).

    I sure do hope that the Direct Instruction folks and the rest of the education world can start communicating more successfully from here on out. There really does seem to be value in the DI programs that others are not willing to see.
