Problem Statement

This is my problem statement athat I am w riting for a paper that I am preparing for a class that I am currently in. My topic is "Autistic children in the general education classroom; mainstreaming, inclusion and pull out options". May be I need to change this also but I want to talk about the autistic children in the school system and placing them in the regular education classrooms. I need help making this problem statement work. Tell me what I need to do and how to go about this. I wantto make it presentable and I was told by one of my peers that this needed a lot of work. Help!

There is a problem in the local school system where I am current employed.
