Dear friends of public education,

It’s been far too long since my last post–I was away from my desk.

Nonw, I’m back and happy to report that my little law book, GRADES, REPORT CARDS, ETC…AND THE LAW continues to meet needs all over the country! People seem to love it.

In fact, I’ve been invited to speak around the country on this issue which is really about the nuts and bolts of inclusion in classrooms. How do educators provide grades for all students, including students with disabilities, honestly, validly, and fairly–so that they and their parents get the relevant information they need. And ultimately, so education results improve.

If you have specific questions, concerns, or comments on these issues, please send them along. I’ll do my best to respond.

Also, I wanted to let you know that my third little law book (the first one is now an LRP Publication, STUDENT TESTING AND THE LAW) will be published soon. It is called, IEP AND 504 MEETINGS… AND THE LAW. This little book, too, should be a great addition to your library–useful, and hopefully, fun, too. A law book that’s fun? Yes, indeed we aim for that!

Moving from Confusion to Confidence to Return to the Mission of Educating All!

Miriam
