Book Title: More Heaven: Because Every Child Is Special
Book Synopsis: Six children with special needs and the fortitude of
one remarkable teacher, Miss Tina Randolph, mount
a tireless daily battle to shift the tide toward the
acceptance of people who are different. Accepting
their uniqueness and sharing in their private, fantasy
world, while engaging them in the real world, Tina
gives them a chance at learning and life. Despite
challenges and lack of support, her commitment
to reach, teach and inspire never wavers.
MORE HEAVEN is based on a real pilot program in
the Philadelphia public school system in response to
the 1975 Education for the Handicapped Act, ruling
that US public schools educate all children with disabilities.
The experiment, begun in chaotic uncharted waters,
bridges the gap of understanding and paves the way for
inclusionary education practices and social acceptance
of children and adults with special needs
”a road that continues to need paving.
