Independent evaluation shows flaws in Bronx, city special education program

An independent evaluation of the city?s education system shows several flaws in the special education program in the Bronx and city.

While the first several pages of the report lists improvements in the special ed program, according to the New York Times, much of the evaluation describes what is wrong and what needs fixing. Part of the report finds reorganization of 37 district offices into 10 regions has created confusing roles and responsibilities. It also describes the special ed computer system as a disaster.

The city paid a team of experts $350,000 for the evaluation of the special education system.
