Expenditures continue to rise for students with disabilities, making special education an increasingly important component of education funding. This study explores the issue of
special education adequacy through two questions:

  1. What analytical techniques exist for estimating the cost of an adequate education for special education students?
  2. How might these techniques be applied to estimate costs for special education students in California, and how do those estimates compare to current expenditures?
