The costs of providing special education services long have been an increasing concern at all levels of public education. The debate centers largely on two questions: (1) What is the true cost of special education? and (2) Are these special education costs diverting funds from general education programs? This ECS Issue site provides facts about special education finance to help policymakers better answer these two important questions and understand the trends related to financing special education.
