The Washington Teachers' Union is concerned about the D.C. Public Schools FY 2013 School Budget that will reduce special education services, increase class sizes and seriously undermine the academic achievements of D.C. public school students.
What You Can Do to Make a Difference:
Take action for special education and write your local legislators—using both your home and school zip code—to urge legislators to revisit these critical issues and exercise their authority to challenge decreases in services for special and general education students in D.C. Public Schools.
Sign the petition to restore special education funding and encourage parents and students to take action too!
