New Mission

New Mission


My idea is to explore how other countries around the world are dealing with education and special education issues. I’d like to see different successful schools, wherever they may be, up close. I’d like to sit down with directors and administrators. I’d like to speak with government officials who keep a pulse on the education affairs of their communities. I want to learn more about education around the globe through speaking with locals, seeing the schools, and shaking hands with the people responsible for implementing the systems. If you know of any outstanding (public or private) special needs schools in other parts of the world, I’d love to hear about them. If you know any education experts from around the world, I’d love to be introduced to them. Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts or ideas. Read more about my mission.

Advisory Panel Formed To Determine Cathie Black's Fate

Education Commissioner David Steiner costructed an advisory panel to help him determine whether Cathie Black should be the next chancellor.  This team will decide whether to grant the waiver that would be necessary in order for her to take over since she lacks the usual credentials and experience that under New York State law a chancellor should have.  They are expected to meet formally tomorrow.
