Another ESA momma bear attack spotted in the Arizona Republic letter page

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

If you are squinting  at your iPad, this letter basically asks where the calls for oversight were when her child’s district received $26,000 from the state and the district delivered an hour of speech therapy with a side order of indifference. “Before we attack and try to defund the ESA program that is doing a lot of good things for disabled kids, maybe we should look into the lack of oversight and accountability in our public schools.”

    Doing some math with the amount mentioned in the letter. $26,000 spread out over a 180-day school calendar comes to about $144/day. According to the AZ Department of Economic Security, that would pay for 2 hours per day with a trained speech therapist.

    If there were just 4 kids in a school getting $26,000, the school would have over $100k to hire a full-time speech therapist.
