Three experts weigh in on issues of  fixing special education–a discussion that was begun by Common Good as a book party for my Fixing Special Education–12 Steps to Transform a Broken System. The experts are Michael Best, general counsel of New York City public schools, Jean Johnson, Executive Vice President of Public Agenda, and me.

Yes, that far back! Check out the classic that started Miriam’s speaking career– the Education Week Commentary, “The Elevator Theory of Special Education.”  It was punchy, controversial, and, alas, still rings true today. For years, it graced bulletin boards in schools around the country!  Even now, people remember that piece!
