Disability advocates await details of N.J. school-funding plan

Parents and advocates fear New Jersey's generous support of special education may soon end under a new plan to reshape the state's education funding despite the governor's assurances that programs will not be shortchanged. "We feel that learning disabilities do not know economic boundaries," said Frank Belluscio, a spokesman for the school boards association. "All school districts are already paying far more than they should for special education, and this would only foist more of the cost on some of them." The New York Times
