Estimates and Projections of Special Target Group Populations in Elementary and Secondary Public Schools.
Froomkin, Joseph; And Others
The extra expenditures for students requiring special attention in public schools, e.g., the financially disadvantaged and the culturally different, are estimated. Also provided are cost estimates for professional help given to the mentally gifted and the handicapped students (speech impaired, mentally retarded, emotionally disturbed, deaf, and visually handicapped). The report is divided into (1) an outline of the rationale for selecting the special populations for separate examination, (2) the problems of counting the target groups, (3) some projections of the target populations to the years 1975-76 and 1980-81, (4) the estimates of extra costs associated with different target groups, and (5) the estimates of costs that would have been incurred in 1970-71 for serving all children with special needs. Included are some conclusions about the extent to which present practices fall short of recommended standards of service. Forty tables support and illustrate the text.
