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.

Mother Sues Doctors For Birth Of Disabled Child

To what extent should a medical office be liable for failing to warn a parent during pregnancy that the child may be disabled?  In the story referred to below, a mother is suing her doctor's office and the ultrasound facilities for failing to bring to her attention that the child would be physically disabled.  Her son was born with one leg and no arms.  The mother says she would have had an abortion if she had known.  Despite seven ultrasounds having been conducted, the issue of disability was not addressed.
