  1. Dear Cal,
    Thanks very much for posting this information,. Since 2004 the IDEA has required all public schools to encourage the identification of children with special needs to be identified by the school district. Its not happened and parents have been left with little or no help in challenging schools on providing services. especially for Home Schoolers.

    We have a large number of Home Schoolers in Mchenry County and its only growing. As some estimate at more than 20% per year. Lots of educrates may loose their jobs and we can only hope that the savings goes back to the students and to the tax payers.
