Nearly 50,000 New York City students were denied special education services

NYC Department of Education annual report on special education
April 04, 2018

The NYC Department of Education has released its annual report on special education. The following is from the introductory paragraph:
 
Nearly 50,000 New York City students were denied special education services to which they were legally entitled in the 2016–17 school year. That means that more than one-quarter of city children who were assigned specialized programs didn’t take part in them.
 
The finding comes from the city Department of Education’s annual report on special education, which was instituted by the City Council two years ago in the wake of mass complaints from parents and advocacy groups.
