PUBLIC ADVOCATE BILL DE BLASIO ASKS NYC PARENTS OF STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES TO TAKE SPECIAL ED SURVEY THIS APRIL

Earlier this week, Public Advocate Bill de Blasio launched a new survey, and ARISE Coalition announced a series of "speak-outs" for parents of students with disabilities as part of a citywide effort to draw a spotlight on the state of special education in New York City.

In the next 500 hours (now through the end of April), de Blasio would like 500 parents to take this survey, to help parents' voices be heard in the New York City Department of Education. If you are a parent or guardian of a student with disabilities, please take the survey online and encourage others to do the same. The survey is short and will take just a few minutes of your time.

Recent reports suggest that the school dropout rate for students with disabilities is as high as 23.8 percent in New York City. As the Department of Education begins to reform special education over the next couple of years, it is imperative that parent voices are heard to better inform public policy.

For more information on upcoming parent "speak-outs," visit www.arisecoalition.org.
