Alas, my aching back did not permit me to attend the conference and present the 12 step agenda for fixing special education.  I believe it would have been a thought-and-discussion-and action provoking session. It’s really too bad. 

Hopefully, with the meds I’m taking and the physical therapy (I’m sure many of you know the drill), I should improve quickly. Here’s to next year!  I always love the ACSA meeting in Monterey. 

So, here is a link to the presentation.  Let me know your thoughts!  It’s time to fix the special education system!
