One of the magical phenomena associated with being an educator is that some of the most powerful learning moments come from the very child one is nurturing and educating.  On a visit to my children in New Jersey, I experienced one of those magical moments.

My seven- year-old granddaughter shared a story with me that she made up, neatly printed on a couple of three-ringed sheets of paper. It was a great story and was well written, too.

In July of 2010 President Barack Obama signed an executive order calling for the hiring of 100,000 workers with disabilities over five years. Today, however, a new report from the Government Accountability Office finds that federal agencies are not making enough headway.

“Nearly two years after the executive order was signed, the federal government is not on track to achieve the executive order’s goals,” investigators wrote. The report found that just 20,000 employees with disabilities were hired in 2010 and 2011 in the federal government.
