Dear friends of education reform,

My almost-ready-and-soon-to-be published new little flipbook, FIXING Special Education–12 Steps to TRANSFORM a Broken System is almost here. We expect a late October launch!

The book is mentioned in Joanne Jacob’s terrific blog today,

This little flipbook will be availabe at Park Place Publications….

And, of course, through my website,

This little flipbook of reforms balances the tale of special education’s success with the need for reform. 12 steps to transform this broken system for the 21st century. The 12 steps provide a framework for discussion and action–with openness, balance, common sense, and without the fear of touching this law.

Stay tuned! Onward and upward for systemic reform!
