CASE, CEC and NEA on sequestration

from CASE

Facebook I don't know about at your house but at our house the political calls are getting more frequent and more frantic. While we have stressed national issues (my apologies to our Canadian and other international members) it is also important to double check your local and state election issues for critical votes that may affect education. With so many people voting early, we do have to make sure we are informed of the intended and unintended consequences of our actions and that those who will be affected most are also informed. Dr. Deb Ziegler, assistant executive director, CEC, Policy and Advocacy Services, made me aware of a great resource from NEA on sequestration. NEA has a state by state chart on the possible effects of Sequestration. One of the articles below from the CEC Policy Insider is on sequestration. This issue has the potential to impact education and families more than any other issue right now. Do your parents of students with disabilities know about this potential cut in funds? I cannot imagine that districts will be able to absorb a 8-9 percent automatic cut in federal funds and it not impact staff, programs and services. Our parents could be a wonderful ally for us in this situation. Look at this information on your state and make sure everyone is truly aware of what in action by Congress between now and Jan. 2 will meant to our students. Be sure to go to the CASE Facebook page and write suggestions, questions, examples of how your district will be impacted. Let's get a dialogue going on Facebook.
