State Board of Education Considers Change to Staffing Requirements for Special Ed Students

A push is underway to block a proposed rule change that could affect classroom conditions for special education students.


Current state rules say that no more than 30% of students in a classroom can be special ed students.


If the numbers go beyond that, school districts have to hire more staff. But the State Board of Education is considering a rule change.


Educators say that could put too many special ed students into a classroom, making it impossible for them to get the specialized instruction they need.


Teachers unions are using op-ed pieces and direct lobbying efforts in hopes of defeating the proposed rule change.
