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.

CUNY Chancellor Matthew Goldstein Planning To Step Down
Over the last couple of years, I have continued to cross paths with Chancellor Goldstein on occasion. I had the pleasure of hearing Chancellor Goldstein speak at the Macaulay building for an event honoring the current dean, Ann Kirschner. I recently exchanged brief words with him at a Crain's panel event on education. Whether he knows it or not, his tenure as chancellor has influenced me greatly. I don't know that I have ever had the opportunity to personally express that to him in the past. Thank you Chancellor Goldstein for all your hard work. I have personally benefited a great deal from the program that you helped shape. You will be missed as chancellor and I wish you good luck with your next endeavor.
