Visual Impairment and Blindness Experts SystemI VBES - Illinois The Visual Impairments and Blindness Expert System (VIBES) will help answer questions and give advice. For example, you can pick one of the academic tasks, like reading, and learn about its tactile alternative techniques, like Braille, used by a person who happens to be visually impaired or blind. You can then see products (and services) for Braille, and find the organizations (or people) where you can get the products. This introductory version of VIBES, containing only 35 topics, is intended to demonstrate how VIBES works, and inspire you to submit topics to VIBES. We hope VIBES grows to over 5,000 topics within 5 years. Anyone can contribute information to VIBES

a heavy reliance on parent fees to this financing strategy finds resources from other development,including the massachusetts education Finance Administration
Facts In Action Home Page One Making it Count In Brief ... About the Early Education Clearinghouse Page One: New Strategies: Finding Funding for Early Education The cost of child care in the United States is a burden that falls mainly on the shoulders of families. A report by the Children's Defense Fund calculated the average cost of center-based care for a preschool-aged child to be between $4,000 and $6,000 per year, with the average cost of care for infants and toddlers nearly double that amount. Low-income families in particular are hit hard by the high cost of child care. A study published by The Urban Institute in December 2000 reports that, on average, lower-earning families spend 16% of their income on child care, while higher-earning families spend only 6%.
Child care differs from other educational services in that user (i.e. parent) fees represent a very large percentage of a program's revenue. For every dollar spent on child care in the United States, 60 cents comes from families, 39 cents comes from federal, state, and local government, and only one cent comes from the private sector. By contrast, for every dollar spent on higher education in the United States, only 35 cents comes from families, while federal, state, and local government pay about 45 cents, and all other sources (such as private gifts or endowments) pay about 20 cents.
