The issue features a specially produced section with advertising highlighting programs and companies leading the way. Who is evolving to meet the needs and mold the future of our changing region? Who are the innovators? What programs and companies are breaking new ground?

Features: special Education Marketplace advertising section.

Wondering if it pays to advertise? Check out what Michelle, a Jr. High School teacher in Utah, did with a previous issue:
"I was wondering if I could purchase two more copies...I want to create a collage of sorts with the colorful ads in the Education Marketplace to put up in my room for my students to see just what is out there for them. Pass it on to the counseling center when I’m done with it. They are 9th graders, but it is an Honors Biology class so many of them are highly motivated (or at least their parents are ! :-) and are already thinking about college. I had no idea there was so much out there for them, so I doubt they did either."
