D.C. SPECIAL EDUCATION: Slower Payment Hinders Advocacy, Lawyers Say

Date: July 16, 2009
Author: Michael Birnbaum
QUOTE: The District has slowed payments to lawyers who help families obtain special education services, which lawyers say is limiting the number of students they can assist and city officials say is necessary to rein in costs....About 20 percent of those students are sent to private schools, at a cost to taxpayers of about $200 million, because the city cannot meet their needs.
