New Mission

New Mission

My mission is to explore how other countries around the world are dealing with education and special education issues.

I would like to visit and observe different types of schools that have proven records of success, wherever those schools may be. I would like to meet with school directors and administrators, government officials, leaders in the business world, and others who are responsible for implementing education systems or otherwise connected to education to learn more about how education is being addressed in their communities.

If you know of any remarkable schools in other parts of the world (especially special needs schools), please let me know about them. If you know of any education experts who are engaged in remarkable work in this field, please introduce me to them.

Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts or ideas regarding the above. Read more about my mission here.

New York State Education Department Commissioner David Steiner To Resign

Shaking things up a little more in the wake of Cathie Black's resignation, New York State Education Department Commissioner David Steiner has announced that he too will be stepping down.  Commissioner Steiner was responsible for granting the waiver that overlooked Cathie Black's lack of credentials and allowed her to become chancellor.  Commissioner Steiner intends to be out sometime before August 2011.  He and Ms. Black are joined by several other education officials from the NYSED and the NYCDOE who recently announced plans to move on.
