Dr. Mary Carlson Joins Working Group on Special Education

Dr. Mary Carlson has accepted an invitation to join the United States Conference of Catholic Bishop’s working group on special education in Catholic schools called “An IDEA for Catholic Schools.” A data-driven project, the group will use surveys and listening sessions to make strategic recommendations about the current special education landscape. The goals of the group are improving current special ed law enforcement, suggesting regulatory and/ or statutory changes, and the establishment of special education in U.S. Catholic schools, Dr. Carlson is enthusiastic about the possibilities, saying “if I can help move the needle on this, it will be very exciting!”
