How about this.
If the President, Professor Gates, and Sergeant Crowley can sit down and have a beer at the White House, how about parents of students with disabilities and school personnel–sitting down just to talk with and listen to each other. When the President mentioned that idea at his impromptu news briefing yesterday, didn’t the nation breath a bit easier?
Surely worth trying. Talking and listening to move forward together might work better than the endless battles we now have about special education.
