I wanted to alert our readers to another interesting blog they may also want to follow. This academic year, the Council for Exceptional Children, a professional association for special educators, is featuring blogs by four “newly minted” special educators, all in their first, second, or third year in the field, to discuss their experiences in the classroom.

A version of this news article first appeared in the On Special Education blog.

As her pupils bend themselves to their books, teacher Marie Donnelly guides them along in their studies at P.S. 77 in the Glendale section of Queens, New York, Sept. 28, 1959. In her 40 years of teaching, never has Donnelly had so many African-American students in a class. The youngsters were bused to the school from Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn, a predominantly black neighborhood where schools are overcrowded. P.S. 77, which had an enrollment of 368 all-white students, can handle 1000 children comfortably. Parents in the Queens neighborhoods objected to influx, but the children themselves adjusted to one another without incident.
