I have one deep hope. A hope between now and mid-October. And here it is: in preparation for Bridge weekend this October, you are going to make a very generous donation to the school. :) Because we all remember how incredibly amazing special ed in California used to be, and how, despite its great downfall, there is a place up in Hillsborough led by a rich and famous -- and very gifted -- musical couple; an organization, a school, that refuses to let the old ways die. The spirit of the Jauna Briones OH -- the "true" JBOH -- still thrives in this magical place, and it shall forever serve as a beacon of hope. A great hope that one day, special ed all over this state will return to greatness, and that discrimination against the disabled will once again not dominate our daily issues.
