The tranlation for the Latin phrase on the Seal of Virginia is:
Thus Always to Tyrants
And it's as relevent today as it was when the flag was first sewn.
It's time for the Virginia Special Education Regulations to be renewed. Unfortunately, some of the proposed reg changes would be catastrophic to families of children receiving special education services in Virginia. The most notable proposed changed would have let school districts decide, WITHOUT PARENTAL CONSENT, that a child was no longer in need of special education services.
But 77,000 parents in Virginia have spoken - the most to ever speak on a change to the regulations. So has the Governor and other key legislators. And although not yet fully approved, it seems that change will be removed from the proposed regulation changes.
I'm proud of you, Virginia, very very proud!
