To directly answer JL’s points: (a) aides serving kids with IEPs already serve 4 to 6 or more kids per classroom; (b) much of the budget for special ed is required by unfunded federal mandate (IDEA) or court precedent; (c) psychologists and social workers already rotate among the elementary schools; (d) I don’t believe Newton is accumulating above average numbers of special needs kids but I’d be interested in any evidence JL can provide; (e) I, too, would love to see more of the budget go to accelerated curriculum. On this last point, I know a working mom who volunteers an hour a week to conduct a special math enrichment program for accelerated kids in the upper elementary grades. It would be great if Newton hired somebody with training in this area, but it’s hard to imagine how budget cuts will help!.

Last year’s “Never Hide” campaign from Ray Bans showed two suited men looking straight out of Mad Men in their signature glasses, holding hands on a busy city street.

Oneforensics superstar of this era was Michael West, a cocky dentist from Hattiesburg, Miss., who claimed that by shining florescent light on skin and donning a pair of yellow goggles, he could see wounds that had been inflicted months before, and had long ago healed (or so it would seem!). Over the years, West has claimed that the idea for this method which he called “The West Phenomenon” came to him while he was giving lectures in China and was told about an ancient Chinese surgeon who noticed that battlefield wounds looked different in light that had been filtered through a silk tent. West has since been discredited and no longer testifies, but his influence on the early development of bite mark analysis can’t be overstated..
