Breaking: Congress Does Something Good
Yes that is not a typo. Last night Congress passed a funding bill, with bipartisan support, still not a typo. The funding bill increases the IDEA school age program by $500M. That nearly makes up for the funds cut by the Machiavellian sequester (over $600M).

This is a victory for kids with disabilities and those of us who work in this field.
