A friend just forwarded something to me about greenwich roundup. I hate to say i have never heard of this before.
I'm writing because of the correspondence regarding special education in the district. i have been involved with the parent committee of pta council (SES Committee) for about 12 years and co-chair of it for a number of years, including this year.
I would be very interested in following the community discussion about special education and contributing where appropriate.
can you explain a bit about greenwich roundup and the greewich topix forum? (there was a special education community forum in May of 2008. about 50 parents came and discussed a number of topics. a report was generated based on the forum).
anyway, i look forward to hearing more about your forum and what discussion there might have been about special education.
There have been many parents who have told Greenwich Roundup that they wanted to bring up issues concerning their children who are in Greenwich Special Education classes. However, few of these parents have been willing to come forward and post their concerns out of a fear of retribution from Greenwich school administrators and educators.
They fear that if they speak out about the situation, then their children will suffer more.
However, if a parent tells Greenwich Roundup to withhold their name and protect their identity we will do so.
The reason that we wanted to cross post the articles at the Greenwich Topix Forum is that others in the community can comment anonymously about how special education services are delivered in Greenwich.
Paige if you would like to give your thoughts about special education, please send us a post and your comments will be posted unedited for all to see.
There are some things that are done well in Greenwich, but there are many things that need improvement.
