In Fights Over School Services, DCF Children Getting Bigger Boost, January 2013

November 12, 2013 
More than 100 times a year, advocates for children in state care tussle with local school districts over what kinds of educational services those students should receive and who should pay for them.

The costs to educate a child in the care of the state Department of Children and Families often far exceeds the $15,000 average cost to educate a public-school student. Adding a paraprofessional could increase costs by $30,000 a year in salary alone.
