NPR report #Florida charter schools refusing special needs children. Separate is still not equal. @awakethestate


From the NPR report this morning

“More than 86 percent of the charter schools do not serve a single child with a severe disability — compared to more than half of district schools which do.”

“In Duval County, just one student enrolled in a charter school has a severe disability. Duval district schools educate more than 1,000 severely-disabled students.”

Just one… ?

Really?

Remember, separate is still not equal…

Never has been … never will be.

.

Except in Florida, where apparently…. 

disabled children are treated unequally.

We are One

Awake the State

Save our Schools

Wear Red for Ed

Stop Race to the Top
