How special education enrollment is changing in California

Assistance for special education students has never been more prevalent in the California education system. And awareness for the needs of these students has never been greater. That said, there is still a long way to go in terms of getting critical services and academic resources to the students that deserve them.

Sadly, it is not uncommon for young people in California jails to have various types of learning disabilities and special educational needs.
