** ADVANCE FOR MONDAY, APRIL 8 ** FILE ** State superintendent of public instruction Tom Watkins is shown May 2, 2001, in Lansing, Mich. When Watkins was hired as the state superintendent last April, Michigan was fighting one lawsuit from special education advocates and facing another from teachers unions. A year later, the legal wrangling has ended and Watkins is winning praise from both groups. He accomplished his two major goals: Updating the rules that govern special education and passing a new school accreditation plan. (AP Photo/Al Goldis, File) LJG101
