"A Report on Consequences of Sequestration"
A new report from Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Committee says that looming automatic cuts to federal spending will take an especially big bite out of special education.
The report issued this month estimates that 12,000 special education teachers and aides could lose their jobs if automatic cuts in federal special education grants to states go through.
These automatic, across-the-board cuts, known as sequestration, are set to take effect Jan. 2. The White House estimates that, overall, almost every U.S. Department of Education program stands to lose 8.2 percent in funding.
