Special education has a long and troubled history in the United States – only in the last 50 years have students with learning differences had protections under federal laws. And while most students in special education programs are no longer isolated from their peers the way they once were, the debates over special education and inclusion leave many young people feeling ostracized and unsuccessful.
How can we help educators support students with learning differences? And how can we help students with learning differences feel like they are equal to their peers?
Peter DeWitt will be joined by Superintendent Chaunté Garrett, and other guests to explore these questions and others.
