A brief but spectacular take on how everybody can learn

Senior Lecturer Allan B. Goldstein explained how his brother Fred, a survivor of the Willowbrook State School, an institution on Staten Island for people with disabilities that became notorious in the 1970s for its neglect and abuse of residents, prompted him to explore ways to make the education system suitable for all types of learners.  “My brother is probably the reason why I do everything I do… I chose to create this course that puts people with and without disabilities in the same classroom, to start thinking differently … the students learn how to communicate in a different way,” reflected Goldstein.
