the sequester is a 2% across-the-board cut in the growth, not even a real cut. So instead of increasing the spending, say 5% next year, it will now only increase 3%. If a 2% cut in the increase would stop your child from going to her special school, then you have more serious issues to worry about than the sequester.
This really does not follow. What if a district decides to close a program to cope with the cuts? Why would that imply the parents of the kids in that program have a more serious issues? And what issues are those?
Why such hostility towards people with kids with special needs?
