Re: “Frustrated board wrestles with special ed

These are indeed terrible statistics and yes, there have been other reports that pointed to extensive problems throughout the years. But that's not a reason to impatiently dismiss this as "same old, same old".
As an example of refreshing clarity, Dr. Elliot highlighted data from the rapidly rising use of the category "other health impairments" being applied to African-American boys compared to state and national data so we see proof of this as a local phenomenon of institutional racism. Since we've committed to addressing district inequities through a racial justice lens, the report is extremely helpful.
I commend the superintendent for courageously seeking to find and discuss these problems - we cannot address issues until and without an unflinching examination of reality. And we need public support rather than cynicism as we pursue aggressive solutions.
