Crowdfunding for Your Special Education Classroom
People around the world crowdfunded more than 34 billion dollars last year! And there’s no reason why your classroom can’t be in on the action, too. We recently put together a field guide to help you understand what crowdfunding is, how it benefits your students and how to get started. We’ve even put together a step-by-step walkthrough about how to get started.
ESSA: Why Does it Matter?
As school districts close the books on the previous academic year, they can look to the upcoming school year with optimism knowing that the pressures of meeting the challenging requirements of No Child Left Behind (No Child Left Behind (NCLB), 2001) have been significantly reduced as part of the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA, 2015) which goes into effect this school year.
Supreme Court’s Special Education Decision
Special education in American public schools can point to a handful of landmark legislative and court decisions over the last 42 years that have transformed education practices. Starting with 1975’s Education for All Handicapped Children Act (EHA)—later becoming The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)—to 1982’s Rowley case, to NCLB (now ESSA), each decision set a new precedent in the way educators supported children with special needs in public schools.
