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.

Threats Of School Bus Strike Leave Parents In A Lurch

It was anounced on Friday that NYC bus drivers may be striking because of a dispute relating to renewal of a bus contract.  There is currently no definite timeline for when the strike would begin.  The Wall Street Journal story below indicates that, according to city officials, the chances of a strike are uncertain, but, according to the bus drivers union, a strike is likely.  As a precaution, parents receiving bussing from the city should start planning for alternate means of transportation in the event that a strike does happen.
