Simon’s proposed legislation aims to improve special education process and cost

Parents who placed their autistic daughter in a private school are to be reimbursed tuition and transportation costs after an administrative law judge found that her home school district failed to adequately test the child and provide her with appropriate education.

Even before the ruling, a New Jersey assemblywoman had proposed that the governor create a state-level committee to scrutinize current special education practices and make recommendations to improve them.

Some schools are doing an “excellent job” in providing special education services, according to Assemblywoman Donna Simon, R-16, which covers Hunterdon and Somerset counties as well as South Brunswick in Middlesex and Princeton in Mercer.
