People First Language and the Language of Special Education

his morning I was going through my routine of reading the newspaper and checking the internet when I came across an article on Reddit! from NPR’s senior education editor Steve Drummond on How the Language of Special Education is Evolving. One of the things I found most was his reference to a web-based style guide for journalists from the National Center on Disability and Journalism (NCDJ), based at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, for “journalists, communication professionals, and members of the general public who are seeking appropriate and accurate language to use when writing or talking about people living with disabilities.” . The overall recommendation in this guide is a principle we should all live by: “Always use people first language”.

Deep in the Heart of Texas

While drinking my coffee a few mornings ago I decided to check my Twitter “curations”; i.e., the self-generating list of news articles which, according to Twitter’s meddling metrics on me, I would find enticing. In the time it took me to finish my tasty Caribbean expresso, I discovered that almost every major news outlet was carrying a story about Texas and how they allegedly denied students access to special education. My curiosity got the best of me and rationalizing that “I need to know this for work” (but really I’m just nosey), I read on.

A Connecticut Judge gives an “F” to Its Schools

In the first few weeks of September, The New York Times reported on Judge’s Thomas G. Moukawsher’s critique of Connecticut schools. Judge Moukawsher’s decision was a response to a school funding lawsuit that claimed the state was shortchanging the poorest districts in his state. According to the articles, the judge spoke about the achievement gap due to inequities in how our schools are funded. He spoke about fifth graders in inner-city public schools who can read only at the kindergarten level, while students in nearby affluent neighborhoods are thriving.
