28th Annual Report to Congress on the Implementation of the "Individuals with Disabilities Education Act," 2006. Volume 2
Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, US Department of Education
The "28th Annual Report to Congress on the Implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, 2006" follows the 2005--i.e., the 27th annual report--in sequence. The "28th Annual Report to Congress" has two volumes. Volume 1 presents a picture of how children and students are being served under the law nationwide and provides profiles of individual states' special education environments and early intervention settings. It also includes tables of states rank-ordered by their reported data on exiting, dropouts, educational environments and early intervention services and settings. This volume, the second one of the "2006 Annual Report to Congress" consists of tables that also were compiled from data provided by the states. Such data are required under the law. In fact, the collection and analysis of these data are the primary means by which the Office of Special Education Programs monitors activities under the "Individuals with Disabilities Education Act" ("IDEA"), thereby helping to ensure the free appropriate public education of all children with disabilities. Data tables in vol. 2 cover a multitude of topics regarding states' implementation of "IDEA", Parts B and C. In the analysis of data presented in vol. 1, there are frequent references to specific tables in vol. 2 as sources. In that sense, vol. 2 can be used as an appendix to vol. 1. However, the tables in vol. 2 provide much more extensive data than are referenced in vol. 1. As such, they may be used by anyone interested in doing further analysis of state activities funded under "IDEA". Appendices include: (1) Data Notes for "IDEA", Part C; (2) Data Notes for "IDEA", Part B; (3) Population Data; (4) Enrollment Data; (5) 2003 Child Count by Disability and Race/Ethnicity; and (6) Budget Data. (Contains 216 tables and 3 footnotes.) [For the related reports, see "28th Annual Report to Congress on the Implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, 2006. Volume 1" (ED516262); and "2006 Annual Report to Congress on the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Part D" (ED516251).
