Sarah Palin Gives a Big Speech on Special Education

Vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin gave a speech today on special education. You can read more about it over on my colleague, Christina Samuels’ On Special Education Blog.

Palin advocated, among other things, for full funding of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act. I wonder how that will square with Sen. John McCain’s plan to freeze most spending—including for education programs—until he can conduct a top-to-bottom review of all federal programs.
