Extractions: Schools of Choice Transportation Case* By Peggy Burns, Esq. S chool districts in Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, and the Dakotas can breathe a sigh of relief now that the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has issued its ruling in Timothy H. v. Cedar Rapids Community School District . The case concerned Kratisha, a special education student whose parents wanted to have her "choiced in" to a school in the district which was not her neighborhood school. Kratisha, who has cerebral palsy, spastic quadriplegia, multiple orthopedic problems, and severe communication disabilities, attended Thomas Jefferson High School, where it is not contested that she was receiving a free appropriate public education (FAPE). Her IEP required special transportation services - a lift bus and establishment of a special route - which were provided when she attended her neighborhood school. Her parents wanted her to attend John F. Kennedy High School under the district's intra-district transfer policy. That policy provided in part: "Parents shall be responsible for the transportation of students not attending their resident area school." When the district refused, the parents filed a claim under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 ("§504").

Vouchers Updated: Dec 10, 2002 Charter Schools Research NEA Resources Other Resources April 1998 Accountability in charter schools is a bottom line concern in this new experiment in public schooling. Charter schools receive freedom and autonomy in exchange for improvements in learning and climate. Are charter schools indeed accountable to their constituencies: students, their parents, and the taxpaying public at large? This paper looks at the issue of accountability in three broad categories: student learning; equity concerns, and public accountability. In each category, the goal is to raise points that can, in the long run, lead to the weakening of this experiment. Policymakers owe it to students, their parents, educators and the public to ensure that charter laws and the oversight of charter implementation will lead to strong performance and equitable outcomes for all involved.

Extractions: (Also enter "Subscribe" to receive free Biweekly Updates) Most education special interests, like the National Education Association (NEA), do not have the interests of children first and foremost in mind. Their leaders scorn any plan to expand the choices of parents beyond the school to which their children are assigned. Despite enormous growth and power in the 1980s among anti-choice education leaders and lawmakers, those groups that continue to oppose this popular tide of school reform, are finding it more and more difficult to win. With growing support for and participation in choice programs, it is hardly surprising that the opponents of reform have accelerated their attacks on educational choice. The criticisms against choice constitute nine broad categories. Here are rebuttals to three major ones. Lie #1: Choice will leave the poor behind in the worst schools.

Extractions: About the author: Carl Skordahl is director of special education for Osseo Area Schools, Minnesota This article originally appeared in the January 1997 issue of Strategram, published by the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning. Minnesota school districts, like many districts in other states, are facing serious fiscal limitations. The district I represent not only faces reduced state-level support but also is located in an area that does not have a strong tax base for generating local funds. This fiscal dilemma is occurring in the face of inflation and increased learner needs for those with and without disabilities. Consequently, staff and leadership must address this problem and take steps for its resolution. This article is an attempt to share with you one possible solution for meeting the needs of students and staff despite fiscal limitations. The solution will be presented in the context of the district I represent. The Osseo Area School District is located in a west suburban area of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. Osseo Area Schools serve 21,000 students in 20 elementary schools (grades K-6), four junior high schools (grades 7-9), and three senior high schools (grades 10-12). About 11% of the population receives special education services, and 85% to 90% of those students are labeled mildly disabled. I have been with this district for 32 years and have watched it grow from five elementary schools, one junior high, and one senior high to its current size of fifth largest in Minnesota. It has experienced many of the typical growing pains of rapidly expanding districts.
