This is the inspirational story of a genuine American hero – the woman who “created” special education and devoted her life to making a difference in the lives of children and American public schooling. Elizabeth Farrell was the founder of the first ungraded class in U.S. public schools, the developer of the basic principles and concepts under which special education still operates, and one of the founders of the Council for Exceptional Children. Give this book to your students and all your colleagues – and keep a copy for yourself.
