Aid to 'Special' Kids

* As a special-education educator, I am upset that John F. Dean, our county superintendent of schools, canceled the Career Awareness Days, which have been held each year at the Anaheim Convention Center for persons with disabilities.

Dean claims that the $6,000 expenditure for this event was too costly for the Department of Education, yet their budget has increased again and again since he took office.

In my opinion, these "special" kids have been severely slighted, and I am going to remember it when I vote Tuesday.
