Accept the award
Post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.”
So wrote Ruby in Montreal, the author of the home-schooling blog Schoolsout, informing me that she had selected SpecialEdJustice for a “One Lovely Blog” award! Ruby and I have communicated online before about our mutual interest in the education of children with special needs. Although I’m reasonably confident that there are a number of special education directors I know who would not exactly use the word “lovely” to describe any aspect of my opinions, I am honored to accept!
I was especially touched that Ruby described her nominees as “people who inform, entertain and sometimes even urge their readers into action.” It’s fair to say that Ruby perfectly described my goal as a blogger; it’s always wonderful to hear that you’ve accomplished what you set out to do!
So, with gratitude to Ruby and all of my readers, I urge you to check out the following 15 blogs, all of which touch upon the issues of those with disabilities in general, or special education needs in particular, in important ways. I don’t always agree with everything they say, but they usually make me think:
