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.

Tribeca Film Festival & Disability

I am a big fan of the Tribeca Film Festival and look forward to attending whenever the event rolls around.  At this year's festival, I had the pleasure of seeing a film called Keep The Change.  It is a beautiful film that explores a relationship between two individuals with special needs.  Written and directed by Rachel Israel, it is touching, funny, and very enjoyable.  It is also authentic in that the actors themselves have disabilities of their own.  After the screening, the audience was treated to a Q&A with some of the actors and Ms. Israel.  

If you are interested in seeing Keep The Change, there are still two screenings remaining on Tuesday, April 25 at 7:45 p.m. and Sunday, April 30 at 5:45 p.m., although tickets appear to be available on a rush basis only.  You can read more about the film here.
