Author Event with Mark Claypool, Author of We're In This Together
Mark Claypool, President and CEO of Educational Services of America is signing copies of his book We’re In This Together: Public-Private Partnerships in Special and At-Risk Education at Parnassus Books in Green Hills.
We’re In This Together is a timely book that explores the use by public schools of private education companies to meet the needs of some of the nation’s most challenged and challenging students. The book examines variations of use by states as well as the cultural attitudes toward the private sector to address these core functions of public schooling. The book offers grounded and thought-provoking perspectives on: the legal framework of PL94-142 and its successor IDEA; the disconnect between the needs of young children with autism and public school education services; and the significant size of the at-risk population and the shortcomings of efforts to serve those students.
