  • Global overview of Educational terms: It is a condensation (from a book) produced by the Texas Education Consumers Association for their web site. This glossary of terms is more Global overview of Educational terms rather than specific to Special Education. We frequently hear these terms used fluently at PTA® and Special Ed PTA® meetings and especially at School Board meetings. I hope this glossary will help you in navigating the world of education.
