A quick note to readers:

You may have noticed a break in my running investigation of San Diego Unified’s radical shift to include much of its population of students with special needs in general education classrooms.

As an organization, we’ve made a decision to put that on pause to examine the extraordinary breaking news that emerged last week about San Diego Unified School District’s possible looming insolvency.

That’s a huge deal, and I wanted to jump on it right away and assist the effort to help our readers absorb and analyze what the possible insolvency of the second-largest school district in California really means. My story today about how the district’s own decisions have helped push it closer to insolvency was part of that effort.

However, I’ve still got a few important stories to share from my research on special education. And those are certainly not forgotten. Once I’ve done what’s needed on the insolvency issue, I’ll get back to special education and write those last few stories and lay out my conclusions.

Thanks for your patience, and thanks for continuing to engage. After a few weeks of covering education, I’ve realized just how much work needs to be done to make sure the public’s aware of and interested in what’s happening to California’s education system.
