LD 14 State Senate candidate Mendy Gomez posted this comment on SB1467. This continues the Republican majority's chipping away at funds for public schools by transferring money to private schools which have little or no accountability. Mendy and I would be a voice in the legislature that say stop this and start investing in public school education!
Mendy Gomez "Here we go again!!! Time to act! This bill might be more dangerous than the previous ESA bill. Special Education is funded using state and federal dollars. Many private schools do not have adequate programs to support students on IEPs. As a matter of fact, if a student is attending a private school, has an IEP and the school does not have a special education teacher to support that student...the local public school must provide support!!"
