Falcone to join talk on NPR’s Where We Live

UPDATE 7:30 a.m., July 25: Superintendent of Schools Steve Falcone will join the conversation this morning on NPR’s Where We Live, alongside lawyer Andrew Feinstein and Darien Times Assistant Editor David DesRoches. The show airs at 9 a.m. and can be live-streamed here.

ORIGINAL STORY:

Special education has become a hot topic in the state, as the issue in Darien continues to spark debate about how public schools are delivering services to special needs children.

The Connecticut National Public Radio show, Where We Live, will be discussing special education and has invited Darien Times’ Assistant Editor David DesRoches to participate in the show. Andrew Feinstein, a lawyer who has represented the 25 parents who filed a complaint with the state Department of Education, will also join the conversation.

A representative from the school district is also slated to be on the show, although no name has been provided. John Dankosky, news director and host of Where We Live, examined special education a few months ago and will be revisiting the topic on Thursday, July 25, from 9 to 9:30 a.m. The conversation will be live-streamed here.

“In May, our program explored the laws governing learning disabled students and how schools are teaching them,” Dankosky wrote in a statement. “Tomorrow we’re going to explore this important Darien case, and find out what it might mean for special education students and school districts across the state.”

The state recently found Darien Schools to be out of compliance with state and federal law.
