So we can vote it down again! What is going to work in the more populated areas isn't going to work in the more rural areas. I hate that we're just wasting all this time! We need a better plan---actually, that's not even it. It's not a one size fits all solution.... we need plans that will fit rural and more populated areas.

The administration knows darn well that the blame goes on the feds, or at least they should. Augusta has no choice but to make sure that the federal mandates are followed. Not following those mandates would result in Maine losing million in federal special education funds and enough lawsuits by the parents of special eduaction students that your head would spin.
