Special Education: The Budget Dilemma

Published March 17, 2011

In response to the recent article “Special Education for Schools a Delicate Balancing Act,” a partner at the law firm of Littman Krooks LLP has stated:

“It is imperative for lawmakers to understand the ramifications of cutting back funds for special education.  The IDEA and Part 200 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education in New York provide for services to allow children with special needs to make “educational progress.”  This includes not only the neediest students but those with mild disabilities.  Many children who are classified with disabilities and receive special education services early on, go on to college and do incredibly well because those special education services were provided.  We cannot take shortcuts as the long-term effects of reducing funding of special education services will affect society for years to come.”
