Minnesota Legislative Action Coalition targets Special Education subsidies

The Hopkins Public Schools’ Legislative Action Coalition is proposing a legislative platform to: “unburdening public schools of duplication, outmoded reporting methods and archaic regulations that take much-needed dollars away from Minnesota students.”

Except for special education students, it seems:

The platform aims to reduce the state share of the special education cross-subsidy – the amount of general education fund that a school district uses to pay for its special education program – by 10 percent and create a task force to eliminate the state share by 2023. Special education mandates in Minnesota exceed federal requirements.

… of course the federal mandates are “enough”, right?

What is your community and state doing to its funding for special education programs?
