Moving On From 'On Special Education'
Education Week - about 4 years
Florida health care regulators say the reasons behind the placement of hundreds of severely disabled children in nursing homes comes down to money. In this gripping piece, my former colleague Carol Marbin Miller at the Miami Herald writes about how these decisions are made and gives us an inside look at the hearings held to decide that these children shouldn't be raised at home. This entire saga has troubled me from my perch here at On Special Education. I've learned so much in the nearly two years I've written about students with disabilities for Education Week, including, in this case, a lot I didn't know about federal and state government roles in the care of children with especially severe disabilities. I've learned how iPads and other tablet computers can change the lives of some students with disabilities. I reported about how private school vouchers for students with disabilities may be politically motivated—and have nothing to do helping special needs kids. S ...

IN the small subset of automobiles that can properly be called American sports cars, the undisputed king is the Corvette.

  • 1968
    Age 36

Like Webb's Dragnet, it was based on real Los Angeles Police Department procedures and cases. It was hailed for its realistic, positive portrayal of ordinary police officers.

Tod's traveling partner on his escapades was his friend Buz Murdock, a former employee of his father's played by George Maharis. During the series' third season, Milner got a new co-star as Glenn Corbett was brought in to replace Maharis. Tod's new traveling partner was Lincoln "Linc" Case, an Army veteran who had a dark past, and Corbett remained in the role for the remaining season and a half. Route 66 was a different sort of television program, as the travels of Tod and his traveling partners were shot on location. Thus, Milner spent nearly four years traveling the country for the series, sometimes taking his wife and children along.
