More on medicaid special education cuts

The National School Boards Association ("NSBA") has been in front of this issue and doing its best to change the impact of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' ("HHS") efforts to effectively cut special education funding.  I reported on the new proposed HHS rule in the September 10, 2007 entry.  More information about the proposed cuts and NSBA's efforts can be found in the August 2007 Legal Clips.  An index and links to many NSBA documents produced in its advocacy against the change is found in the Advocacy and Legislation section of the website.

I believe the issue of special education funding - and the lack of it - is of great concern to both parents and schools.  Hopefully, together parents and schools will fend off any rule change that in effect cuts financial support for our special children.
