Special Education Funding: A Story of Broken Promises.
Amlung, Susan, Ed.
This report examines the Federal and State financing of New York City's special education programs in the public schools and documents the inadequacies of current funding. The report seeks to determine the extent of the Federal government's involvement in financing special education. In addition, New York State's allocation of funds for special education is analyzed and suggestions are offered concerning changes in the finance structure which would benefit New York City's handicapped students. Recommendations for New York City include how additional revenues for special education might be obtained. A survey of 11 large cities in this report, which focuses on the fiscal impact of the Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975 (PL 94-142), demonstrates that New York City is not unique in its dilemma. The report maintains that it is the responsibility of all levels of government to share the costs of special education. (Author/APM)
