Military Special Education Survey

Supports and services provided to military children can vastly differ between states and school systems, and each PCS is disproportionately more difficult for EFMP families.

All children receiving special education are entitled to a free, appropriate, public education.

The data shows there are systemic problems with special education for military families across the US and the trend is many school systems are not providing the required standards of education.

  • The survey data will be shared with Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) as we advocate in Congress.
  • The survey data is not shared with schools.
  • The survey can be completed anonymously.

Please participate! Your participation is greatly appreciated and an important step towards advocating for reform.

Thank you. We value your sacrifice. We hear you.

The Norman’s Story

At Wrightslaw, you’ve learned about the Norman’s story and the Legal Battle for Marissa. We’ve kept you updated on their case, MN v. School Board City of Va Beach.

Take time to watch the video below as Michelle Norman speaks at the 2019 Congressional Military Family Caucus: Special Education Panel.

Michelle is the 2019 AFI Navy Spouse of the Year.

Please join this grassroots effort of military spouses.

Share this survey to your pages/timeline.  We want to reach everyone, regardless of service branch.

Thank you!

I am the Special Education Director at the New Orleans Military & Maritime Academy. We are the largest open-enrollment public JROTC school n the nation. Not all of our cadets are from Military Families. I come from a military family, 2 of my brothers served for over 20 years and one has a child with a diagnosis of ADHD who was never adequately served.

How can I help?

Thank you for posting this! I hope the world learns how poorly parents and children are treated in this space.
