Florida special-educator named to national hall of fame

Longtime educator David Lazerson, who inspired the 2004 movie "Crown Heights," was named to the National Teachers Hall of Fame. Lazerson, 57, spent the first part of his career teaching inner-city and at-risk teens; now, he uses music to engage students with disabilities. "He has that God-given special ingredient that makes for a real teacher," said friend and former colleague Marcia Neuberger-Catz. "He reaches children, touches everybody's hearts." The Miami Herald
