Three laws that have shaped and resolved the rights and services available to the students with disabilities will be discussed in this section.Section 504 of Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Individuals with Disabilities Act( IDEA )and The Americans Disabilities Act( ADA). The IDEA is the major federal statute providing educational rights to students with disabilities. Even so, two other statutes, Section 504 of the rehabilitation Act and ADA which was modified recently (ADA,2006,2008), also have implication for the disciplinary process when it involves students with disabilities ( Russo & Osborne, 2009).

In 1960s, Malcolm Knowles introduces andragogy - a new approach to teaching and learning for adult education with a focus on the learner. When initially presented in 1968, his theory comprised four core assumptions which, by 1998, evolved into a series of six, currently standing for the principles of andragogy - the means and methodology of teaching adults. Thus, Knowles differentiates adult education from child education in terms of need, self-direction, prior experience, readiness to learn, life-centred orientation, internal motivation . Nevertheless, in our endeavour, we shall refer to the four basic core principles designed by Knowles as we believe that the two extra concepts later added are self-included: needs in motivation and self-directness

Performance Standards: This involves evaluating the school counselor through a rating system designed to assess if the counselor has effectively implemented a comprehensive program and met the goals specified in the management agreement. ASCA offers a rubric based on thirteen performance standards, which may be used for this purpose (ASCA, 2005a).

On a historical perspective, multicultural developed with the 1954 Supreme Court decision that affected education equality, by providing equal education in schools. In 1957, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act provided education rights to children with disabilities. On another note, in 1974, educational rights were granted to children that do not speak English. In addition, contemporary trends have developed to address multicultural aspects in the education field by developing programs and policies that target specific groups, such as Head Start programs, Title1, and the No Child Left Behind. In essence, by developing these programs and policies improves educational outcomes for children.
1: a. Describe your learning from professional development activities you participated in this semester (school, district, university level). On January 10, 2018, I participated in a school professional development focused on AIG training and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). Staff were grouped in grade level teams and were trained in best practices to use with teaching Gifted Students and incorporating these practices into our lessons and classroom culture. Our PBIS training consisted of reviewing how to use the PBIS lessons provided by the PBIS team for each grade level within the classroom.
One teacher for 37 pupils in primary school, which is the national average but there can be over 100 pupils per class in marginalized or rural areas.

In order to improve the socio-economic level of French-Canadians, Lesage’s chief aim was the modernization of Quebec (Babich & Béland, 2009, p. 264; Pious, 1973, p. 56). The Lesage government initiated many institutional reforms in the zones of education, health, and social welfare (Gossage & Little, 2012, p. 233). For instance, in 1961, Paul Gérin-Lajoie, minister for youth, revealed an increase in the age for compulsory school attendance from fourteen to fifteen and a plan to supply free textbooks to all students (Gossage & Little, 2012, p. 233). Furthermore, Quebec also took over health care from the Church, making Quebec the only province to decline the national pension plan in order to form the Quebec Pension Plan. As a result, the Lesage
