New Mission

New Mission


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.

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.
