Paraprofessionals can be seen as benign grandparents, aunts or uncles who reinforce the actual parent's agenda. They can offer comfort, or discipline with more latitude then administrators. They are often privy to issues long before administrators. Two or three well intended trained paras give higher return on investment than ballooning administration staffs.

Type A lady should explain 'professional friends,' then recuse herself. Her points are valid. Unfortunately, she negates their application with her passive/aggressive admission. She can't have it both ways. This is another zero gain way to put her name in the public's eye. Remember this duplicity on election day.

Seems to me, for 10K, it should be tried for a year rather than giving into two subjective observations.

In this case, Ms. Wessels has hit the nail on the head on all counts. She is especially point on about former SED administrators being qualified to make, or, oversee, correct clinical judgements. Superficial PROCESS is by no means PROGRESS. Parents and STAFF beware.

What are these kids being told about themselves. What is the 'repatriation' process for the students. Where has Levay done this before? Was it Iowa City.
When does the posturing end, and these kids get their childhood back.
Spring couldn't come up with a better example of classification stigma than not qualifying for the military. First off it's a highly inaccurate generalization. Secondly, his remedy is a reductionistic farce. Military induction just does not operate as he describes it.
I hope these kids get what they need and deserve. We'll have to wait to see.

This looks like really sound use of community resources. Kudos to the school district for partnering with religious leaders. Kudos to Rabbi for framing the dialogue. 12309 is very lucky. It should take pride in and support such efforts.
