Cain, Nancy Ellen, Comp.
Presented are five papers selected from five regional 1973 conferences on financing education programs for handicapped children. R. Rossmiller's paper, "Coming to Grips with Costs and Expenditures" discusses such program aspects as organizational programs, financial policies, population identification, and empirical and theoretical studies. An overview of state laws, legislative trends, and suits on behalf of the handicapped (including Pennsylvania, New York, and Michigan cases) is provided in R. Browning's paper "School Finance: Where Are the Handicapped?" R. Henderson's consideration of "Financing Special Education for Exceptional Pupils" covers the topics of special education costs per program, prevalence of exceptional children, and state reimbursement of special education costs. Also provided are selected panel presentations of P. Turnham, M. Daly, M. Essex, T. Drain, H. Wrigalter, and J. Schrag. State priorities, including financing of early childhood special programs, interagency cooperation, and mainstreaming are suggested. Listed in the information supplement are state special education program and finance officials. (CL)
