New Scholarship For Students With Special Needs
The Florida legislature approved more than 18 million dollars for the "personal learning scholarship account" to help parents choose educational plans for their children with special needs.
Sign ups begin today and there will be around 1,800 children who could be helped this year.
One mother says she will sign up so she can help individualize the education of her fifth grader who has down's syndrome.
Just as the sign-ups begin, a lawsuit by the Florida Teacher's Union against HB 850 that included the scholarship has been filed.
They claim that bill was approved incorrectly.
