3. About special ed funding - - -

When Congress initially mandated sped in 1974, they promised to fund 40% of the cost. And until just recently (I believe just last year), they funded 17%. Now it's up to 23% or 24%.

So yes, let's please stop the idiotic myth that states and school districts make money by labeling kids as disabled. That's complete bullshit.
