A statewide task force has proposed a major shift in how special education is taught in California. They want to see more special education students in general education classrooms, increased intervention for preschoolers and more teacher training. It's unclear where the funding would come from for the proposed changes, but there's strong impetus to improve the outcome for students with disabilities.

Guests:

Michael Kirst, president of the California State Board of Education and professor emeritus of education at Stanford University

Alice Parker, national director of special education for Cross & Joftus, LLC and former assistant superintendent and state director of special education for the Calif. Dept. of Education

Nicole Shaddox-Ramos, mother of a tenth-grader in special ed

Caitlin Boyle, supervisor in the Special Education Department of San Francisco Unified School District
