Letter: Special Ed Complaints Common, Students’ Response Inspiring
TO THE EDITOR:
My name is Pam Wright. My husband Pete Wright and I built the #1 website about special education law and advocacy in the country. We’ve written and published many books and do training programs for parents and teachers around the country, Wrightslaw.com.
What sets your situation apart is the student protest on behalf of students with disabilities who are being short-changed.
I was struck by the leadership of Zach Colon, the student who organized the walkout, the reasons for the walkout, the organization of the walkout, and the request for an independent investigation of the school district’s special ed system.
