Special Education Day

special education, education

Today is Special Education Day.

Over 6.5 million kids in our public school system receive special education services–that’s 13 percent of the children enrolled in our nation’s public school system. Studies show that these kids are two to three times more likely to be bullied by their peers.

Honoring Special Education Day

Today, in honor of Special Education Day, show your support for these students. See if there are any events going on in your community. Or ask your local school official if there is a way you can lend a hand, such as becoming a tutor.
