CSRD Alignment Study
An Alignment Study of Special and General Education Reform in Comprehensive School Reform Demonstration Programs
The Research Products Links ... Contact Us
The Academy for Educational Development (AED) , in partnership with the National Association of State Directors of Special Education (NASDSE) , and the RMC Research Corporation have joined together to examine systemic educational reform and its effect on special education in two schools in Maryland and Massachusetts. Recent federal education law calls for systemic reform efforts across general and special education and the unification of general and special education systems.
This three year descriptive study of the alignment of special education and general education reforms in CSRD-funded Title I Schoolwide Programs in Maryland and Massachusetts will increase the knowledge and understanding of reform in general.
The Research
  • At the national level, the study will analyze questionnaires of all State Directors of Special Education, Coordinators of State Improvement Grants, and State CSRD Coordinators. The project will identify how selected CSRD model developers are including students with disabilities and their families and special education in their reform efforts.
  • At the state level, the project will work with Maryland and Massachusetts and conduct in-depth case studies on how reforms in State Improvement Grants, Special Education, and CSRD, are aligned with the state's general reform efforts.

About VPA

Vernal Pools

Contact Us

The Vernal Pool Association is an environmental project of Reading Memorial High School, Reading, Massachusetts.
Our goal is to encourage the appreciation, protection, and interdisciplinary study of vernal pools, particularly by students. To meet this objective, we produce educational materials, present workshops and talks, and interact with educators and students both in person and through the Internet. We are actively involved with state, federal and private environmental protection and education agencies and organizations. This website, "The Vernal Pool", is our on-line effort at education and outreach.
We encourage individuals and classes to find and study vernal pools near their homes and schools. Once located, in Massachusetts, vernal pools should be "certified" so that the pool "exists" in the legal sense. Certified pools receive whatever protection is provided by various state regulations and practices. In other states, although there is no certification procedure, vernal pools should still be "documented" or otherwise cataloged so that agencies will be aware of their existence and offer whatever protection is available.

Education Reform in Uganda Secures Better Future,
Academy for Educational Development Between 1993 and 2000, the government of Uganda overhauled its primary education system. The key to success was a partnership between American international aid agencies and the strong resolve of elected leaders in the sprawling central African nation. Crucial ingredients in the campaign spearheaded by an American nongovernmental organization called the Academy for Educational Development, the US Agency for International Development and the World Bank were improving teacher education, mobilizing community support and convincing parents their children belonged in school. The Academy for Educational Development and others trained more than 50,000 community organizers, headmasters and primary school teachers; while Irish and Dutch aid agencies helped construct colleges and classrooms.
