Everybody likes to have choices. And school vouchers for students with disabilities seems like a great idea. But, as our Executive Director explained at the Center for American Progress, many parents have no idea that the true cost of that voucher could be their child's civil rights. In many states, like Tennessee, parents have to surrender their child's IEP to receive the funding, with no assurance that they will be granted a voucher in subsequent years.

It is the goal of Post Adoption Learning Services (PALS) to support the unique educational needs of internationally adopted children and their families by providing direct services, training, and education advocacy. We can't do it alone. Would you partner with us to make a tangible difference in the lives of children adopted internationally?
