In the realm of California special education programs and initiatives, it is critically important that principals -- that is, government officials, educators, administrators, legal advocates and additionally relevant parties -- have proven biographies that truly demonstrate a long-tenured and sustained commitment to the state's disabled children.
The reasons why are obvious, of course. Children are at once our most precious and vulnerable demographic, with those who have special needs being a group that must be able to confidently rely upon adults who advocate passionately and relentlessly on their behalf.
Recent details concerning a new state hire suggest that her appointment will further promote the bottom-line objective of serving our California children well.
The biography of Kristin Wright, who was recently announced as the new director of the California Special Education Division, is replete with bullet points that might reasonably comfort those who advocate for children with special education needs. Wright is a credentialed special ed teacher with a master's degree in the subject. Moreover, she has been a researcher, consultant and lobbyist for state children, and has a daughter with special needs.
