PACE Webinar Series on Special Education

In August 2019, PACE bought together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners from across the state to co-develop a research agenda of questions that, if addressed, could guide the development of better special education policy and practice.  In response, PACE commissioned thirteen research projects to address these knowledge needs.
