Extractions: Over 10 percent of Home School Legal Defense Association member families are teaching a child with special learning needs, and the number continues to grow. What does a parent do when his child needs extra help, a different approach, or special equipment to be able to learn? What if these services are not accessible through the private sector, and then denied by the public school? In order to clarify the law for our families throughout the country who need these services, but have been denied, Home School Legal Defense Association filed suit on behalf of several families. We filed in Connecticut when 9-year-old Kaitlyn Gallagher was denied $10,000 of specialized equipment for the blind, in New Jersey when 6-year-old Gregory Forstrom was denied speech therapy, and in Nevada when 9-year-old Christopher Hooks was denied speech therapy.

Extractions: PLAN TO PLACE MCAS RESULTS ON TRANSCRIPTS WITHDRAWN. In Massachusetts, controversy continues over a proposal to record students' performance on the state graduation exam on high school transcripts. Following stiff opposition to the measure, Education Commissioner David P. Driscoll withdrew the proposal to list students' achievement levels on the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS). Opponents contended that such notations would be particularly unfair to African American and Hispanic students in inner cities, potentially curtailing their opportunities for post-secondary education. Nevertheless, James A. Peyser, Chairman of the State Board of Education, indicated that the board may consider the option of noting a "competency determination" on a student's transcript next fall. The notation would be based on passage of the English and math portions of the MCAS.

Other Majors Not too long ago, handicapped children had very little chance of receiving an appropriate education with the personal warmth and attention that would encourage them to reach their full potential, whatever that potential might be. Federal legislation has drastically changed the course of special education. A free, appropriate, public education is now required for all handicapped individuals birth through eighteen. Children who are emotionally disturbed, learning disabled, or mentally retarded or who evidence physical, health or sensory impairments may receive specialized services. The Department of Special Education trains professional educators and school psychologists to provide these services. Special educators are unique people; they see first a child and then a handicap, they can observe the world through a child's eyes and learn to meet that child's needs on an individual basis. Doing so is a challenging, rewarding, and - yes - an exhausting job, but few careers offer such a thoroughly satisfying feeling as knowing you have helped a child accomplish something today that could not have been done yesterday.
