Special Ed Mess in New York City

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Education officials are weeks behind schedule in a scramble to find seats for about 15,500 kindergartners with special needs - and the delays could cost the city millions, the Daily News has learned.
If the Department of Education doesn't offer the kids spots in public school kindergarten programs by June 15, they could be eligible for seats in private schools, with the city picking up the bill, officials acknowledged.
The delays are also causing anxiety for families who need to know where their kids are going in the fall.
