DNSU- 6th Edition- Texas Special Education Services
One of the first things I passed onto you was about kids with disabilities who have been tortured in Texas regarding Special Education Services. A federal judge has issued orders where we now must educate kids. (Look it up on Google: 5th Circuit upholds fed’s $33 million penalty for Texas…) The federal courts have found that Texas gamed the system to identify only 8% of kids in need of Special Education Services in Texas. 13.5 % is the norm everywhere else in the country—yet only 8% here. The difference essentially “saved” the state money for kids who did not receive Special Education services; the federal government has cut off money for us so we can fulfill our students’ needs. Everyone has a right to be educated. Everyone.
