“Texas Loses $33 Million IDEA Funding”
**TEXAS RESIDENTS/PARENTS** It's official.... Texas will lose $33.3 million in future IDEA funding as a result of their reducing state financial support for students with disabilities back in 2012. Sadly, it is our children who will ultimately pay the price for their actions.
According to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, Texas's "weighted student model contravenes the plain meaning of the MFS provision by allowing a state to reduce its special education funding based on its unsupported claim that the needs of its disabled students have declined." “In fiscal year 2012, Texas made available roughly $33.3 million less for special education and related services than it did during fiscal year 2011. Accordingly, the Department of Education issued a proposed determination that Texas was ineligible for $33.3 million of future grants because of the short - fall in both aggregate and per capita state funding.”
