Mike Klonsky reports that Chicago Public Schools is cutting special education.
“Our autocrat at City Hall appears bent on dismembering special education in Chicago by a thousand cuts. SpEd took its first major deep cut over the summer eliminating 500 positions at CPS. More cuts announced late Friday mean approximately 160 schools would lose special education teachers, while 184 would lose aides.”
Let the lawsuits begin. There is a federal law to protect children with disabilities.
