California is facing another major crisis at the end of the year.
A new report from the advocacy group California Education Reform finds that 1 in 3 public school students in the state are in special education, the highest percentage in the nation.
These students are also more likely to be the first in their families to attend college and live in families with lower incomes, according to the report.
And the cost of educating these students is skyrocketing, which means it is far more expensive to educate them.
The California Department of Education, however, has been ignoring the problems facing special education students.
According to a statement released by the agency on Thursday, the California Department is committed to “working collaboratively to address the crisis in special ed enrollment and improve the quality of life for our students and families.”
And so far, the agency has not responded to the calls for help that the California School Boards Association and other special education advocacy groups have made.
But it does seem that the agency is not doing its job.
The California Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Despite these concerns, California is one of the states with the highest rates of special education enrollment in the country.
the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the number of children enrolled in special-education programs rose from just under 6 percent of all children in 2000 to nearly 20 percent in 2014.
California has been one of just a few states where the rate of special-ed enrollment is more than three times higher than the national average.
That number has increased from 12.3 percent of children in 2014 to nearly 24.5 percent in 2019.
The data comes from the National Center for Education Statistics, which tracks data on students enrolled in school and other programs across the country and which tracks special education programs across California.
The agency did not respond to a request for comment on how the state plans to address its problems with special education.
In addition to the increased costs of special ed, many students are not receiving the kind of support they need.
According a 2016 report by the American Association of University Women, children in special schools are more likely than other children to have behavioral and academic problems, which can have lasting consequences.
The AOUW report found that one in three students in California’s public schools has at least one behavioral problem and one in five students have one or more academic issues.
Some of these issues, including disruptive behavior and physical or emotional health issues, are linked to low self-esteem and depression.
“It’s a sad story, and we’re trying to do everything we can to get kids out of these kinds of situations,” said the AOUGW’s chief executive, Nancy Kohn.
“But we can’t do it by closing schools, or by pushing people out of their classrooms, or if we do, we’re going to have no way to get children into the program.”
One of the key ways the state hopes to help special education children is by providing them with the tools they need to thrive.
According in the report, California has a number of “school-wide programs that aim to help families improve the lives of children with disabilities,” but many of these programs are funded with money from the state’s general fund.
California’s state budget is expected to be in the red in 2019, and the agency does not have enough money to fund all the programs in its system.
And it is also not yet clear if there will be enough funding to cover the costs of these special education services in the future.
California has also been one the states that has seen an increase in special educational students who are at risk of being expelled or suspended for non-compliance with school discipline policies.
The state has seen more than 1,200 students suspended since 2000, and that number is expected grow by nearly 40 percent in the next two years.
But as the number and severity of students in special school rises, there are questions as to whether the state is doing enough to protect students.
The report by California School Board Association also noted that in the last five years, the state has cut funding for many special education projects in a way that is not being seen in other states.
According the report’s authors, California’s schools are already suffering from a funding crisis.
A recent study found that the state will lose $1.7 billion in funding in 2019-20 if it doesn’t reduce its special education funding.
In the past, the majority of the cuts were made by state officials themselves, the authors wrote.
The lack of funding is hurting the education of special needs children, including the students who suffer the most from these types of policies.
“The state is not investing enough in our schools,” Kohn said.
“And we need to stop doing what we’re doing and start investing in our kids.”
