It was actually harder to find info on Special Education Week than I thought it would be. In 10 pages of Google search results, the closest I came was an Examiner.com story claiming knowledge of a nationally recognized Special Education Week in March. I saw an article somewhere about a state special education week in April and found some items on Catholic sites.
When I began searching, I expected to quickly pinpoint the real Special Ed Week dates so I could point out the error and go on my merry way. The absence of evidence made me wonder if there is even a Special Ed Week at all. And that REALLY made me feel like these kids don’t matter. Which makes the post in which people purport to care all the more ironic.
