DULUTH - A new report from the Office of the Legislative Auditor affirms
the need for increased education funding and special-education reform in Minnesota.
The state's education commissioner, Brenda Cassellius met with
Duluth Superintendent Bill Gronseth and area teachers and administrators today.
"Our special education budget in Duluth is about $22 million
and that's creating about an $8.1 million cross subsidy and that's money that
could be going into our regular classrooms,” said
Gov. Mark Dayton's budget proposal would invest $125
million dollars in special education.
