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.

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.
