Take Action! Oppose HB 5552. Read Our Testimony for March 7, 2016.

The Feinstein Education Law Group will Oppose HB 5552 in front of the Education Committee on March 7, 2016.

Dear Parents,
I am writing to request you take a moment to send email testimony to the State Department in opposition ofHB# 5552: An Act Concerning Special Education.  
This bill can only be introduced because the concerns of parents of children with disabilities are not adequately being represented in Hartford.  
This Monday, 3/7/16 the Education Committee will hear testimony on legislation that adds another hurdle for parents of children with disabilities to jump through before they can bring a due process hearing to secure an appropriate educational program for their child.
Text of the HB:5552 Bill can be found here:
We need taxpayers to oppose this bill by emailing your testimony to the Education Committee at edtestimony.cga.ct.gov in a PDF format 
Letters can be as brief as stating your opposition to HB #5552: An Act Concerning Special Education.  
Reasons to oppose HB Bill #5552; An Act Concerning Special Education include the fact that this bill:
- creates a time consuming and costly barrier to the resolving due process issues
- unfairly protracts and delays access to appropriate interventions for the disabled child.
- tips the scales towards school districts because "independent" arbitrator qualifications ensure a high likelihood that these roles will be filled by current or former employees from within the public education system.
