Langley Special Education Inquiry Report


The Langley Special Education Inquiry Report, released in January 2008, was a joint project of the District Parent Advisory Council, CUPE Local 1260, and the Langley Teachers’ Association. Key findings of the report include that there has been an historical underfunding of special education in BC that has led to overcrowded classrooms and unmanageable caseloads for teachers. The Inquiry also found that graduation levels for special needs kids are 10 points below the average for all students.
