Schools across San Diego County are left trying to find millions on funding for mental health services after Gov. Schwarzenegger shocked educators and county officials by cutting funds to counties.
Whose Job Is It?
Counties across California have historically provided help to students with mental health needs, but schools must provide services to students with disabilities under federal law.
The Big Picture
San Diego County has often refused to provide services when California fails to fund them, arguing that the state has to fund programs if it wants counties to carry them out.
