TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senators John H. Adler and Shirley K. Turner to establish the Special Education Review Commission to study special education best practices from around the state received finals legislative approval today.
“Each year, New Jersey’s school districts face budgets where an increasingly larger share of funds are taken up by special education. We need to identify those programs and practices that are most effective and efficient,” said Senator Adler, D-Camden. “The recommendations of this committee will distill the methods of over 600 school districts and provide schools with new ideas for meeting the special needs of those with learning and physical disabilities. The goal must be to improve education while reducing the cost to schools.”
