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.

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.
