Los Angeles charters will get more special-education funding

Jan. 5, 2011
School board approves agreement to provide more money

From The Los Angeles Times: Charter schools in Los Angeles will receive more money to educate disabled students and more freedom from the Los Angeles Unified School District, under an agreement approved by the school board. The pact will cost the cash-strapped school system millions of dollars because the district will now give charter schools state money that it previously kept for traditional schools' special education programs. But failing to make the deal could have cost the district many millions more if charters exercise a new right to contract for special education programs.
