ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of accessing the general education Mathematics curriculum for secondary students with high-incidence disabilities in the U.S. According to the author, it is important to assess the education curriculum for secondary students to address the problem showed by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) that there were 30% of students in eight grade who scored below a basic achievement level with basic defined as partial mastery of knowledge and skills. This result led educators to conclude that Mathematics achievement of secondary students with disabilities deserves closer attention.
