The NEA will publicize our ongoing commitment to the protection of the full range of special education programs and placement of students in those programs dependent on student needs and the Individual Education Plan (IEP) process. Any candidate seeking NEA endorsement  must publicly state their commitment to full funding for special education. 

Rationale/Background

The greatest challenge to the education of special needs students today is not their own disabilities; the most severe threat to these students now is the ongoing attack against public education in general and against special education in particular.
