"Fiscal Showdown" Proposed Cuts to Federal Funding (IDEA)

K12NN Education news & advocacy platform to empower parents, educators, students.

As a resource, at K12NN we created a podcast where we spoke to an instructional paraprofessional in a Delaware school and had a Twitter party recently where we discussed possible cuts to special education funding as a result of the upcoming "fiscal showdown." Here you'll find all the links, plus details on the estimated $5 billion for the next ten years, that'll be cut from the federal education budget if we don't speak up.

I invite you to listen or read further. Please do raise your voice and let the lame duck Congress know these cuts are unacceptable.

We're collecting stories of people with children who'd be affected by the cuts. These go directly to Congress via our K12NN Popvox interface.
