Tracking the Growth in Special Education Spending.
Rothstein, Richard
School Business Affairs, v64 n8 p13-20 Aug 1998
A study analyzed detailed expenditure reports of nine typical U.S. school districts for 1967, 1991, and 1996. From 1967 to 1996, special education's share jumped from 4% to 18% of all spending, whereas regular education's share fell from 80% to 57%. Furthermore, 40% of new funds went for special education; 23% for regular education. Implications are discussed. (MLH)
