that question The report is a blend of journalism and reseach the Education Week Research Center delved into federal data to offer an important snapshot of where students with disabilities end up after they leave high school My journalist colleagues and I give life to those numbers by talking to students as they make important future decisions about college and about work For example Do students with disabilities tell their colleges about their special needs or do they try to go without any of the supports they may have used in high school The answer most of them do not disclose For students who are headed directly to the workplace have they been taught how to advocate for themselves The answer it s hit or miss Recommended reading Posted on 9 June 2015 Author John Lloyd

policy Public Policy special education Saying no to violence Almost 20 years ago on a discussion list that was a precursor to SpedPro a group of us led by Jim Kauffman developed a statement about preventing violence It seems like a propitious time to revisit it Here is the introduction to it We are in no danger of becoming a nation of wimps we are in imminent danger of becoming a nation of thugs We know the details of violence among children and youth in our society We recite the litany of this violence with shame sorrow disgust and terror For decades we have failed to act on what we know about the causes of violence and aggression We can not afford to delay effective action any longer The violence and aggression of the young have no single cause nor a single solution Decades of research have revealed several contributing causes and partial solutions If we take any of the following steps we will become a less violent society If we argue about which step should be first or complain that taking only one or two is insufficient we will waste energy and delay progress If we take all these steps together we will reap the benefits of concerted coherent action None of these steps is easy or quick nor is any a full remedy all require intelligence and persistence The full statement is available for review Posted on 18 December 2012 Author John Lloyd Categories Commentaries
