Last month the Chicago Public Schools announced they would be laying off 2,000 teachers and support staff for the upcoming school year. In response to the news, many critics have said those who will be put at most risk will be students with special needs. Not only those with learning and physical disabilities are at risk, but those students with past behavioral issues and those who have been identified as being at risk of being victims of Chicago street violence could lose essential services. Those cuts come in addition to the 855 teachers given pink slips in June.
