(Canada) Montreal: Quebec government failing SPED kids

Aug 27, 2017, Montreal Gazette: Services for learning-disabled children: 83% of Quebecers think province must do more http://montrealgazette.com/news/local-news/services-for-children-with-learning-difficulties-83-of-quebecers-think-province-must-do-more A Crop survey carried out for the CSQ, which represents most primary and secondary school teachers, shows that only 34 per cent of the citizens surveyed consider the public school system sufficiently funded to deal with learning-disabled students. Conversely, 83 per cent believe that the government must invest more in both the school system and child care services so that these students have access to the services they need. ... Among the teaching staff, the diagnosis is even clearer: 88 per cent say that they are witnessing a daily lack of services for these students. Similarly, 86.5 per cent find that pupils in their schools are waiting for professional services to which they are entitled.
