Texas school finance and special education - What's Your Point?


This week's panel:   Bob Price – Associate Editor Breitbart Texas, Tomaro Bell – super neighborhood leader, Tony Diaz- Chicano educator and activist, Marcus Davis - host of "Sunday Morning Live", Bill King - businessman, columnist and former Kemah Mayor, and Jessica Colon -  conservative strategist, join Greg Groogan to discuss comments made by Scott Brister, Chairman of the state's public school finance commission.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas has posted a final draft of its plan for overhauling special education across the estate.

The Texas Education Agency has been working on the plan since federal officials found that the state had illegally denied services to students with disabilities for years. The posting sets an April 6 deadline for public comment before it's submitted to the U.S. Department of Education.

The plan posted Monday would create a professional statewide special education deployment system. It also calls for increasing special education staffing, providing better special education training for teachers and creating more tools for parents of children with suspected disabilities. Meanwhile, it would help school districts identify and help thousands of students who were previously denied special education services.
