Senior Dad: State of special education

Tonight I am listening to Senior Dad (Stan Goldberg)’s podcast on “The State of Special Education,” featuring “known parent advocates” (inside joke) Katy Franklin and Robin Hansen, and Colin Ong-Dean, a sociologist who has written the just-published “Distinguishing Disability: Parents, Privilege and Special Education” — a book that is now on my Amazon.com wish list!  In this wide-ranging discussion you hear the righteous anger of parents who have seen the system fail their own children as well as others, as well as research from an academic who has studied the complexities and inequities of special education.

It’s really worth a listen, and not just because they say some nice things about me. For anyone who wonders why special education parents are so angry, this hourlong program is a must.
