In November 2022, TPPF offered recommendations to the Commission on Special Education Funding. We recommended that the Commission

  1. Approach special education as a service, not a setting.
  2. Empower families to support their children’s unique needs & abilities.
  3. Consider data from Supplemental Special Education Services (SSES) program, which has served 72,000 students but whose waitlist is currently 17,000 children.
