The Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) Assistant Secretary Johnny Collett has released a framework that communicates the way OSERS will focus its work to advance the Secretary of Education’s priorities and continue to make progress toward achieving its mission to improve early childhood, educational, and employment outcomes and raise expectations for all people with disabilities, their families, their communities, and the nation.
“Rethink” is the focus of this framework – and it makes me think about the focus of our grant – developing scholars to be change agents and to build the capacity of others. I think throughout this program we need to consider how each of us can address, question, confront, change, and challenge.
