Costing-Out the Resources Needed to Meet Pennsylvania’s Education Goals for Students with Disabilities

In February 2009, APA produced a new statewide report on special education programs and funding in Pennsylvania.  The report provides information on how much it costs to educate children eligible for special education programs and also explains the reasons behind the costs.  It also discusses the potential benefits that appropriate funding for special education can provide to students, teachers, parents, and the state.  The report has been endorsed by a wide array of organizations across Pennsylvania.
