Home / State Finds Half Of Bridgeport Schools Don’t Have Enough Special Education Teachers; We Found Other Districts With The Same Issue
After a complaint filed by the Center for Children’s Advocacy on behalf of a group of Bridgeport parents, the state Department of Education has found that half of Bridgeport’s public schools lack adequate education staff. Kathryn Meyer, a CCA attorney who filed the systemic complaint with Connecticut Legal Services, said that even for children who do have a teacher the caseloads are not manageable.
“To say that person is covering is just, it’s just false. There’s just no way,” Meyer said. “And they’ll tell you that. They’re like, ‘I can’t even keep up with my own caseload.’”
