Merrimack schools may partner with college

Postby MattPublicover » Thu Oct 27, 2011 5:40 am

The School Board is considering partnering with college student studying special education at Southern New Hampshire University. The college students would come in to observe Mastricola classroom teachers in action. According to an article in today's Telegraph,
Southern New Hampshire administrators ... brought the proposal this fall to Merrimack due largely to the strength the district’s special education program

It is always good to see Merrimack spoken of positively in the press. It sounds like it could be a good program for all concerned, if it comes to pass. While inclusiveness provides benefits for disabled and normally-abled children, it does pose some challenges for the teachers. Having these future educators able to witness inclusive classrooms in a true life setting should help prepare them for those challenges when they themselves are in the front of their own classroom.

Keep up the good work, Merrimack schools!

It was discussed at the last School Board meeting and was all but agreed to ... it is slated to be on the Consent Agenda at the next meeting.
