"This was written with autistic children in mind but encompasses a wider subject; any child who is isolated, introverted or simply self-contained will find something of him- or herself to recognize and appreciate here.

Mass Gov Deval Patrick and Peter H. Reynolds Collaborate on Youth Civic Engagement

Peter H. Reynolds and Deval Patrick, the Governor of Massachusetts, share a common belief: Civic engagement is one of the cornerstones of school success.

Recently, Governor Patrick offered the annual "State of the Commonwealth" address to the citizens of Massachusetts. On the day after his speech, the Governor visited the Greenlodge School in Peter's hometown of Dedham, Massachusetts. At the request of State Representative Paul McMurtry, Peter joined the Governor in helping promote the state's education plan with a particular focus on taking action. In his remarks, Governor Patrick talked about the need to educate the whole child, and specifically, how the Massachusetts Readiness Project will meet that need. Knowing that he and the Governor share a similar educational philosophy, Peter created a Civic Engagement poster, which the Governor gladly signed and Peter donated to the Greenlodge School.
