D.C. mayor plans to overhaul special ed

Washington, D.C., Mayor Adrian Fenty said Tuesday if he takes control of the city's public schools from the school board he will fix problems in special education and place more students with special needs into mainstream classes. He is also promising to cut transportation costs and strengthen teacher and administrator training. The Washington Post

Amazing. We'll see how it goes. I taught special ed in DC Public at Ludlow-Taylor ES. The number of hearings and lawsuits still astonishes me. I figured a new Mayor would want to cut down that transportation cost, especially when it comes to sending folks out of the district!
