investments in professional development This document is an analysis of the most recent developments in some states that are implementing standards based IEPs It is written to further the recognition of this evolving movement and to stimulate additional sharing and conversation among states Posted on 15 June 2006 16 June 2006 Author John Lloyd Categories News NYC special education WNYC s Beth Fertig familiar to listeners to National Public Radio news shows has had a series of stories about special education in New York City NY US The first two were about graduation and the third was about ethnicity I ve written entries about the first and third stories on sibling blogs Posted on 8 June 2006 8 June 2006 Author John Lloyd Categories News DC costs The Washington DC US local education agency LEA spent 118 million in 2005 on tuition for out of district placements for students with disabilities according to an article by Dan Keating and V Dion Haynes of the Washington Post Furthermore the LEA has underestimated tuition cost repeatedly transferred funds from other budget lines to cover the costs does not have a trustworthy records system about students in special education and does not maintain contracts with private providers of special education services D C school officials have promised repeatedly over the past decade to improve and expand public school programs for disabled students which would cut the number of children placed in the expensive private facilities But many administrators and teachers throughout the system say they fear that the spending trends are becoming self perpetuating As the tuition payments grow there is less and less money to hire the teachers therapists social workers and other specialists needed to make the public programs more acceptable to parents and hearing officers hired by the school system That pattern has created some glaring inefficiencies in spending At Lafayette Elementary School in Northwest Washington for example Principal Gail Lynn Main said 12 to 15 students have been sent to private academies over the past three years since she lost one of her two special education teachers during systemwide budget cuts and could no longer meet the students needs Based on the average tuition bill the school system could have avoided spending 600 000 to 750 000 a year if it had given her the 42 000 she needed to hire the extra teacher The coverage by Mr Keating and Mr Haynes is extensive 2800 words but well worth reading Link to the article Also note that the Post provides connections to blogs that have commented on the story some of those are quite intriguing EduWonk WaPo s Keating and Haynes turn in one of the paper s periodic exposés on the scandal that passes for special education in Washington D C More data on the kinds of students served rather than just their cursory demographic overview buried toward the end of the story would be helpful but the article does a great job making clear the contours and severity of the problem DCEduBlog Dan Keating and V Dion Haynes of the Washington Post have a great in depth look at how DCPS manages or more truthfully doesn t manage its special education program From it you will get a good sense of just exactly why the District s school system is so dysfuntional Cato at Liberty School choice opponents love to declare that unlike private schools public schools have to teach everyone Well it turns out that that s not really true As Dan Keating and V Dion Haynes expose in today s Washington Post when kids disabilities get too tough the D C Public Schools turn to private institutions where disabled students can finally get the specialized attention they need ToThePeople The US mandate to fund appropriate education for disabled students ironically has the impact of leaving the majority of students in classrooms that can t afford chalk and erasers WhyIHateDC The Washington Post had a front page above the fold story on DC s out of control spending on special education Fucking tards Give em an inch and they take a mile Posted on 6 June 2006 6 June 2006 Author John Lloyd Categories News Racial disparities The Education Department of the state of New Jersey US found that the Lakewood local education agency LEA discriminated against African American and Hispanic American students its preschool special education program according to stories by Richard Quinn in the and Angela Delli Santi in Newsday Unlike much of the discussion regarding discrimination in special education where the issue is African American and Hispanic American children being mistakenly identified as having disabilities this story is about those students not getting equal treatment Here is a snippet from Ms Santi s story In a 31 page report issued last week but publicized by the ACLU Wednesday Education Department officials cited examples of students with similar disabilities but different treatment plans Besides giving preferential treatment to whites for out of district services disabled white preschoolers also were more likely to be offered full day rather than half day special education classes the report found
