How Are Funding Cuts Impacting Students, Schools, Services?


10/30/2013

Take a Short Survey to Share What’s Going on in Your School

The American Occupational Therapy Association has been actively advocating against funding cuts to education programs. Last year, more than $2 billion was cut from federal education programs, including slashing more than $700 million from Title I and $600 million from IDEA’s special education programs due to sequestration, the federal automatic spending cuts. 

This year, there’s even more uncertainty surrounding the federal budget.

As a member of the National Coalition on Personnel Shortages in Special Education and Related Services (NCPSSERS), we are helping them gather data that will help explain to policymakers the effect of funding cuts on services for children and their families, educators, and schools. Without your help, we cannot know the full impact of these funding cuts. Please take the time to fill out this short survey that we will use to advocate for increasing the federal investment in education with Congress and the Obama Administration. Also, NCPSSERS will share the results for your own state/local advocacy!

Please note: Deadline for survey submissions is November 15, 2013. Individual names will not be shared.
