  •  Many of the for profit schools that would pop up (15+ / 0-)

    would likely be of low quality--especially if they served low income children with special needs. It costs a great deal of money to hire people with the right qualifications to care for and educate these children--and many for profit entities would be looking for ways  to maximize their profits.

    In my own community, the school board did away with the district's janitorial staff and hired a private contractor last year. As a result, the schools are not being kept as clean--and already, it has been discovered that two of the private contractors' employees had criminal backgrounds--one was wanted in another state for selling meth, and the other was on the sex offender registry in yet another state. These kinds of incidents are what worry me the most about allowing for profit entities to educate special needs kids.
