I attended the EdSource meeting last week in Oakland California and heard Michael Kirst speak about the need for reforming special education. The system is antiquated… and needs “another look.” As you can read, the article cites several people, including yours truly and gives a shout out to my book, Special Education 2.0.

Onward and upward.

I’m an optimist and do believe we’ll make the necessary changes–Step by step, little by little. Thank you, Mike, for getting the word out.
