“We are thrilled to work with Scholastic News to offer these excellent high-interest articles and vivid photography, but adapted in such a way that allows all our students in special education to learn from the material in a meaningful way,” said Jennifer Thalhuber, CEO of AbleNet. “Current events are something we know all students respond to, and having our students working with material side-by-side with their peers is a wonderful formula.”
“Scholastic News is looking forward to working with AbleNet and values its 25 years of experience in serving this population of students,” said Hugh Roome, President of Scholastic Consumer and Professional Publishing. “For more than 90 years, Scholastic has provided quality news magazines to classrooms across the country, and we’re pleased to be able to offer the same great content to educators and students in special education.”
