Grading, Reporting, Graduating…and the Law

One of ED311’s most beloved consultants, school attorney Miriam Kurtzig Freedman is celebrating her newest publication Grading, Reporting, Graduating…and the Law, a quick flipbook guide to grades, report cards, and graduation requirements.

Readers will learn:

  • How to handle the legal requirements for accessible and valid grades, report cards, transcripts, honors, and diplomas for all students, including those with disabilities
  • How to provide and receive honest feedback that inspires trust
  • How to explain legal requirements to colleagues, students, and parents in plain language

With its glossary and list of relevant case law, this handy and inspiring guide will help readers confidently handle difficult issues like graduation requirements, weighted grades, testing accommodations, modifications and adaptations, and more—freeing them to focus on better teaching and learning for all students.

Miriam is of counsel to the Boston law firm of Stoneman, Chandler & Miller LLP.  She provides clients and national audiences with lively and practical keynotes, training, and consultation—all in “plain English!” A former teacher, Miriam “gets” it–what school folks need to know and do.

Miriam co-founded the annual Special Education Day (December 2) to both celebrate the success of special education and to spur reform.  A summary of her writing, speaking, and consulting is available at

Miriam will be appearing at the CASE Virtual Winter Workshop this Friday, and she’ll be speaking on her new favorite issue: Trust.  We need trust everywhere, but especially in special education, and she has some fresh, common-sense ideas about how we can take small steps for a big impact.

She will also be giving an in-person appearance in March at the 2022 ADR Conference.
