The American Association of School Administrators just issued its report, Rethinking Special Education Due Process. It is well worth reading.
Agree or disagree, I applaud the AASA for stepping out and promoting this important national discussion. The due process system is broken, as I have written–and spoken about– for many years. It’s well beyond time to fix it. Let’s hope we now have a robust national discussion.
Notably, the AASA report promotes a ‘consultant’ approach, modeled after our Massachusetts SpedEx innovation! It is wonderful to have SpedEx on the national scene. For more information about this innovative, trust-building, child-focused, efffective and efficient, and free to parties (schools and parents) approach, please visit: http://spedexresolution.com/
Onward and upward to a more effective, equitable, and outcome-based schools for all students!
