Bernstein, Charles D.; And Others
Presented is a report which reviews and evaluates existing literature and current state practices in financing special education for handicapped children. For each of the four major issues--programing, cost determination, level of funding, and funding formulas--selected research is reviewed, implications of the research are analyzed, and suggestions for additional research are given. Abstracts of 65 relevant documents are provided in a separate section of the document. It is noted that the report can be useful to policy makers in making special education finance decisions by identifying the key policy decisions in funding programs for the handicapped, delineating relevant considerations for each decision, and providing criteria to evaluate the effectiveness of special education delivery schemes.
