Legislators to study special education this summer

CANTON, S.D. (WNAX) – South Dakota legislators will again be studying the expansion and costs of special education this summer.

Senator Jim Bolin of Canton is Vice-Chair of the committee and says it will be a wider study than last year’s.

Bolin says the demand for special education has expanded quickly in the last 10 years.

Bolin says a special fund set up to help schools pay for special education is being drained rapidly.

The schedule for the committee has not yet been set.
