ABSTRACT
The article presents the criticism of the author against the article "Special Education for the Mentally Handicapped: A Paradox," by Orville Johnson. He points out several aspects of the article, including the approach to special education proposed by Johnson which involves increasing the motivational level of the learner by increasing the difficulty of the tasks being learned by the children. He comments that some of Johnson's exposition regarding the issue overlooks a major portion of the literature on the effects of motivational level upon learning and performance. Furthermore, the author stresses out that Johnson did not discuss the entirety of any of the additional experimental literature which suggests that heightened drive intervenes with learning and performance under certain conditions.
