Extractions: According to West St. Paul-Mendota Heights-Eagan School District 197 Director of Special Programs Tom Schoepf, the federal government actually promised to fund 40 percent of the excess costs of special education. For example, if the district spends $6,500 on a traditional student and $9,000 on a special needs student, the federal government would reimburse 40 percent of the $2,500 difference. However, Schoepf said, if they would receive the full 40 percent, school districts would still have budget concerns because special education is only one of the increasing costs. Skyrocketing health insurance costs combined with inflation, increasing salaries and other costs have contributed to budget concerns, he said.

Extractions: Attitudes toward disability are moving in a positive direction in Spain. However, the physical reality of accessibility lags somewhat behind. Although Spain has increased its accessibility to the physically challenged over the years, students must be aware that they will encounter physical barriers and different attitudes than in the US. However, newer buildings and transportation facilities have been built with the disabled in mind. There are a number of national organizations that advocate for various disabilities. One of the best known is ONCE (Organizacion Nacional de Ciegos de Espana), the national organization for the blind, which provides information regarding vision and other disabilities. They also provide partially subsidized services for alternate formats, readers, and textbook taping. This organization is well known throughout the country mainly because of their sale of lottery tickets, which are used to fund programs for people with disabilities.
