    I never heard it when in Special Education, except from mainstream kids trying to insult us.

    I am the parent of a son with Down syndrome.  Why would you want to use a word that is hurtful and demeaning? No one should use it as it has become a slur. It once was correct is some grammar forms, but NEVER as "retard" ( a noun).
