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.

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.
