Students with disabilities need programs
The governor is proposing more than $1.5 billion in ongoing cuts to K-12 education. The proposed cuts come at a critical time when our schools are attempting to close the achievement gap, especially for children with disabilities.
Cuts to K-12 education have a major impact on special education because these services are federally mandated and still need to be provided to students with disabilities regardless of the level of funding provided. If state funding for education is cut, our school district will be faced with untenable choices that hurt all children!
