LePage wants schools to take over special ed services for preschool kids

Governor LePage apparently doesn't understand that the Special Education system in Maine, when left to the schools, is a joke that couldn't possibly perform the task that he is suggesting.
The LePage administration wants local school districts to start providing special education services for about 2,500 3- to 5-year-olds with disabilities and developmental delays who currently receive the support through a $39 million state program. 
Under a bill the Maine Department of Education plans for next year’s legislative session, the state’s Child Development Services program would eventually stop providing services such as speech and occupational therapy, psychological services and others to young children with disabilities, autism or other needs that, left unaddressed, could grow into more significant problems once they reach school.
