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.

Obama Administration To Allocate $150 Million To Improvements In Housing For Individuals With Disabilities

Housing initiatives in New York for individuals with disabilities are underfunded and options are limited.  Those options that are available do not always offer the accommodations that individuals with disabilities may require.  The viability of Section 8 housing and whether it even still exists has been a big question mark.  Under a new initiative, however, the Obama administration is allocating $150 million for improvements to housing initiatives across the country for individuals with disabilities.  Exactly how that money will be divided among the states and when actual changes will take effect remains unclear.
