the springfield board of special education places students in voc tech stating it would be a great place for a child with special needs to get some kind of trade, the child goes gets that trade and enjoys it, than the springfield district takes away the resource rooms puts them in the general class rooms and lables the students now take away the voc tech what is wrong with this picture?? springfield can save money big time by getting away without those ladies working in the speical service room located at JD Highschool. They do nothing to help our special education students because there is no more speical ed. Remember ladies the speicial education was moved? so why not move you to the employment department....As far as being notified. The parents never get notified by the education department we get notified by our children so there are some more heads you can let go and savce some money.....
