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.

Education Mission # 2: Finland

As you may know, I recently began a mission to explore how other countries around the world are dealing with education and special education issues. As part of that mission, I am excited to be in Finland right now. Finland is thought to have one of the best education systems in the world (see http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/06/opinion/sahlberg-finland-education/).

I have been visiting Finnish schools, meeting with educational experts, and exploring programs that are addressing education and special education in unique ways.

Over the next few days, I hope to report back about details from the trip and insights I have gained.
