Saving the Special Education Program for Charter Schools in Pennsylvania

Good morning Mr . President
My name is Isabel Cruz and I am writing today because I received a letter from my child's school in forming us about the cut's Pennsylvania Senate will try to pass. When I received this letter I was very upset because I am a mother of 2 Autistic children who receive special education in school. If they decide to pass the bill I am afraid that my children will receive minimum help. It's bad enough that my children struggle day to day and now they will struggle in school as well. It is hard enough to find a school and now a days to keep them open. Please Mr . President help my children keep the special needs programs open. Not only for my kids but for all the kids across Pennsylvania. They deserve a good education to. So I ask you on behalf of my children please help our school's. Help the kids who struggle daily to have a better education.
Thank you so very much for what you do for us.
I know we really appreciate the hard work you put into our country.
Sincerely Isabel Cruz
