Special-ed creates budget issues for D.C.

From the CEC Smart Brief:

The Washington, D.C., special-ed system, which serves 18% of district students, accounted for one-third of the school system's rising local budget last year, even as overall enrollment has been declining, the Washington Times states. The editorial calls on the incoming mayor and other civic and school leaders to resolve these issues by mainstreaming more students and adopting certain reforms advocated by the district's CFO.
