Special education teachers and providers are waiting to see if they might receive more funding this year, something decided outside of public school funding.
There have been years where public schools have an increase in funding and special education programs do not.
A bill waiting for Governor Cuomo’s signature would link the two institutions so funding would increase equally.
Teachers will work in special education and move onto public schools instead of staying and investing time in order for higher wages.
With schools beginning to hire and the start of the year coming up, officials are urging the governor to sign the bill quickly.
