Extractions: Malden, MA 02148-5023 Dear Department of Education Members This is a story of two young children in Brookline, Massachusetts. One is rich, the other poor. Both were born with a severe developmental disability. Despite that, each had within him the potential for normal development. Both had parents who were willing to dedicate their lives to getting them the special education services they needed to achieve that potential. Both needed that dedication, because the local educational authorities went to great effort to deny access to those services. The rich child was the first to enter the system. Before age three he was seen by the schools "Early Childhood Specialist." It took the school over half a year to begin any service deliverytime, precious time, in which he could have made substantial progress, but instead was allowed to fall further into disability. He started group speech therapy, twice a week, even though that provided less than 2% of the accepted standard of services for a child with his disability. Then a part-time preschool program. He did not learn to talk or to play. He did learn to attack other children, so that his disability became a prison for his entire family. So the parents of the rich child took some of the money they got back from the school and used it to pay for an independent evaluation of the poor child. They hired the same expensive lawyer. And, after the expected delays, the poor child got the same program as the rich child.

Extractions: August 1999 MASSACHUSETTS Abstract or Conceptual Framework for State Systemic Change The Massachusetts Education Reform Act of 1993 is aimed at a common goal: an educational system that fully addresses the abilities and needs of students and improves outcomes for everyone, including students with disabilities. The state Department of Education, in partnership with child-serving agencies, local school districts, parents, individuals with disabilities and their families, teachers, Institutes of Higher Education, and service organizations, developed Project FOCUS to guide statewide efforts toward systems improvement for the benefit of all students. Project FOCUS is designed to provide pre-service and professional development activities for educators, parents, students, and other stakeholders. The major themes of parent collaboration, research to practice, interagency coordination, innovation, capacity building, and linkages to existing activities to maximize community, state, and federal resources are addressed across activities in six focus areas: Early Intervention and Preschool (birth to 5 years).
