Extractions: By Laura J. Swartley Eleven-year-old Charlotte Reed is on her way to Harvard. To prepare herself for that self-made dream still seven years away, she completes a grueling five to six hours of eighth-grade-level homework each night, for her fifth-grade classes at Birchwood School, a private school in Cleveland. "I want my kids to have an edge," said Charlotte's mother Bobby Reed. "At the same time, I want to be able to live in the city, where my children will be exposed to real life, to a variety of people, and not to the sterile, unreal atmosphere of the suburbs." The Cleveland Scholarship and Tutoring Program allows Bobby, the mother of four children aged newborn to eleven, to work in a field she loves, community service, and have flexibility to attend to all her children's needs. She "lives on a shoestring," but the program allows her children to attend schools that meet their very different needs. Eight-year-old Jesse, Bobby's son, is enrolled at Hanna Perkins School, a private school on the east side of Cleveland that has been successful in addressing Jesse's learning and emotional handicaps.

Extractions: Accountability The US Congress recently enacted the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLBA), requiring states to quantify their successes in educating all children. The NCLBA reformed the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), which was passed in 1965. In an effort to comply with new federal law, Ohio is currently redesigning its school accountability program. The accountability program will be a single statewide system designed to capture yearly statistics concerning each public school, school district, and Ohio as a whole. The statistics will encompass information regarding graduation rates, student population by gender and ethnicity, school district finances, and test results by grade, subject, gender, and ethnicity. The proposed accountability program will be of a 3-tiered framework, incorporating the ESEA requirements, existing Ohio accountability demands (i.e. proficiency tests), and a composite performance index. The first tier will address federal measurements by using the minimum requirements of the ESEA in order to determine whether school buildings and districts have met the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) standard. This determination will include the proportion of students proficient in reading and mathematics (as well as science beginning in 2007-2008), the number of students participating in reading and mathematics (as well as science beginning in 2007-2008), and the results of "other indicators."

Extractions: Aired November 29, 2000 25 years ago today disabled children around the country celebrated a huge victory. The IDEA, or, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, was passed, giving disabled children the right to learn in mainstream classrooms. More than two decades later there are still hurdles to overcome. The Ohio Coalition for the Education of Children with Disabilities has been trying to help parents become better advocates for their kids. In a recent meeting, 90.3's Tarice Sims found out what parents and schools need to know to continue the fight for inclusion. At the Shaker Heights Public Library parents and educators are gathering together to talk about their children. What everyone in this meeting shares is the desire to provide a good education for disabled children. The Ohio Coalition for the Education of Children with Disabilities hosted the event to let parents know a child's educational rights. At the meeting earlier this month, Gabriele Spangler is a parent advocate for the coalition. She lead the group of parents and teachers in a forum on meeting the special needs of their children in so-called normal schools. She speaks from experience. 13 years ago, Spangler's son was born with cerebral palsy. And in her crusade to improve his verbal skills she found help in the most unlikely of places, her son's school.

Since the Cartiers homeschool John and go through a private organization for special needs services, he does not need an IEP.
