"special needs"

I have an honest question.  I hear A LOT about special needs and having a normal life, etc.  I am all for it and not against that at all.  HOWEVER

Does my dd, who is normal, NOT deserve an education? When I was growing up the "special needs" kids had their own classroom and even their own bus so they could get the education they needed.  My dd is getting pushed around to "make room" for a special needs kid that is coming into the school.

So, to reiterate my question...Why does my dd education less important than a special needs kid?  Why does she get pushed aside? 

Just a question - I am really not trying to offend ANYONE, just want to know why normal or more intelligent kids are getting pushed aside. 

Thanks.  Bash if you want, but I am honestly tired of hearing about it personally.  and again - I AM NOT TRYING TO OFFEND ANYONE,

It shouldn't happen that way. Everyone should get equal. Average kids, gifted and talented, and special needs. If special needs kids cannt be mainstreamed without disruptions they should not be mainstreamed. We have special classrooms for special needs if they cannot be mainstreamed.

 What would you call them then?  What is a better term? 

Please let me know, because I don't know of one.

Imo kids with "special needs" have always been segregated from "normal" kids and I think this is society way of finally excepting them as people. Do I think its fair for your child's education to be pushed to the side absolutely not!

I don't think kids now should have to pay with their education because in years past ppl were to close minded to realize "special needs" or not they are still people and deserve the same education.

There should not be disruptions in the classroom. My dd had a girl twirl around the room all during lectures. That is not right. She learned nothing in the classroom and others had to deal with all the disruptions.

 My dd is set on the days she goes - she can only go 2 days a week because that is all we can afford and other days she as extracurricular activities  A new child is coming in who is special needs The director is wanting toswitch her around to "make room" for the special needs child.  IMO - if this was not a special needs child they would have said they are full and can only do such and such a day.  My dd get pushed aside to "accomodate" the special needs child.  NOT cool. Like I said she can only go 2 days a week as it is. first come first serve regardless if they are special needs or not.
