Hello again. My piece has garnered many, many comments, including some excellent discussion starters. That was my hope–to get special education reform on the front burner of education reform. Let’s hope that’s happening. Here’s a beginning…I’ll be on a Los Angeles public radio station this morning, as a result. So, let’s see how the conversation evolves. Here’s the link again in case you wish to revisit. Onward and upward!
