What can you as a parent do?
As California faces a dire teacher shortage, the most impacted students are those receiving special education services. As the first day of school looms, parents, teachers, and administrators face stress to ensure that critical services are provided to our most vulnerable populations.
Finally, advocate for and support pay raises and proper treatment, materials, training and support for special education teachers and staff. This issue of lack of recoupment is directly related to job burn out and in order to maintain high quality trained staff, we need to better support them in the school system.
