Dennis Bernstein, KPFA Flashpoints producer and host, is internationally known for decades of path-breaking investigative reporting. He was chosen by Pulse Media as one of “20 Top Global Media Figures of 2009.”

'Special Ed: Voices from a Hidden Classroom' draws on his years as a New York public school teacher. Bernstein is a poet with a teacher’s heart, and a teacher with a poet’s voice. His poetry has been published in the New York Quarterly, Chimaera, the Texas Observer, the Progressive, and ZYZZYVA.

”[Dennis’] fearless pursuit of the truth about what is happening in our rapidly transforming world did not prepare me for the beauty, depth, not-one-word-mislaid perception of this amazing book. Each word, each line, each thought has a weight, a texture, a surprise all its own.”
—Alice Walker, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, author of The Color Purple
