$3 Billion Dedicated Disabled Children’s Education

Attempts to help 7.9 million children make up for COVID hurdles.

On Friday, the U.S. Department of Education announced that $3 billion in funding from the president’s American Rescue Plan will be put toward supporting children with special needs and their families. Education officials hope that students served by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act will be aided significantly by these financial resources.

“We know that COVID-19 and disruptions in access to in-person learning over the last year have taken a disproportionate toll on America’s children with disabilities, who, far too often amid the pandemic, experienced challenges in receiving the services and supports that they were entitled to,” said Education Secretary Miguel Cardona. “It’s long past time that the federal government makes good on its commitment to students with disabilities and their families.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For disabled children and their families as they endeavor to recovery from the setbacks of COVID learning interruptions.
  • That the Department of Education funding will help communities in beneficial ways.
  • For Secretary Cardona as he leads the U.S. education system through the aftermath of the pandemic.
