Come with me as I explore San Diego Unified School District’s recent shift away from educating children with disabilities in separate, full-day special education classes and towards a more inclusive model, where those students work, play and learn next to their nondisabled peers.

As I investigate the successes and failures of the district’s new era in special education, I want you to be my guides. Steer my reporting by interacting with me as I investigate this story. Share your stories. Participate in the conversation.

Call me at 619.550.5670. Email me. Send me messages on Twitter or Facebook. Write comments on this blog. Send it out to your friends, your colleagues and let’s get a conversation started.
