Parents and educators turned out at a Maine education meeting to voice their concern over the enactment of an emergency rule governing special education in the state. Parents of students with special needs say they are worried the rule will leave their children without the services they need. Education officials say too many students are receiving services they don't need, and the proposed changes will bring the state in line with federal guidelines, saving the state as much as $5 million annually.
