As a member of the National Coalition on Personnel Shortages in Special Education and Related Services, The Council for Exceptional Children has been actively advocating against funding cuts to education programs.
Last year, over $2 billion was cut from federal education programs, including slashing over $700 million from Title I and $600 million from IDEA’s special education programs due to sequestration, the federal automatic spending cuts.
This year, there’s even more uncertainty surrounding the federal budget.
Help us explain to policymakers the impact of funding cuts on services for children and their families, educators, and schools by taking a short survey that will be used to advocate for increasing the federal investment in education with Congress and the Obama Administration. Also, we will share the results with you for your own state/local advocacy!
Please note: Deadline for survey submissions is November 15, 2013. Individual names will not be shared.
