What a disgusting man! Parents of special needs kids need to unify again and march on Washington. This is becoming absurd, for a country with all the wealth America has, and the rich get richer while those with less give more. We need to take a stand!
This is incomprehensible. Mike Klonsky reports that Mayor Rahm Emanuel is cutting the budget for special education.
The city and the public schools are in a deep hole, financially.
But the budget can’t be balanced by firing teachers and aides for children with special needs, for two reasons. First, because it is morally wrong to make savings by taking away teachers from the neediest children. Second, because children with disabilities are protected by federal law. As Klonsky says, parents will file lawsuits, and the law is on their side.
Why not raise taxes on the 1%?
