High quality accademic interventions can do what?

So, I went to a one day conference today on Response to Intervention (RTI) which is a model of addressing the specific academic needs of students prior to referring them for Special Education services. The idea is that through assessment, differentiated instruction, quality instructional techniques, and more time with areas of need many students will not need Special Education services.

Anyhow, the presenter was talking about how a school somewhere used this model, became profecient with this model, and the results were staggering. She said something to the effect of, "Teachers in this school found that these powerful teaching tools brought them more sex."
