Title information

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, one of the founders of the Council for Exceptional Children, and its first president. This second edition includes new original photographs from education archives, along with a new preface and epilogue setting Miss Farrell’s life and work in context for teachers in the 21st century.
