During a debate the other night in the NM legislature there was a question as to whether the list in the paragraph pictured was exclusionary or inclusionary due to the use of "or" followed by an "and" followed by another "or." It's my current understanding that because of the contextual use of the words "relate to" that the list logically includes all variables regardless of the use of an and or an or. Is this correct or does this language exclude certain scenarios? I'm also not sure if this would be a better question for a legal forum.
The use of "or" in the citation is not exclusionary.
developmentally disabled or delayed
the "or" connects developmentally to
so the meaning is:
(teaching) developmentally disabled (students) and (teaching) developmentally delayed (students)
become defeated by or uninterested in school
(students who) become defeated by (school) and (students who) become uninterested ( in school)
