Special education — more than a political football
Posted: 10/30/02 by Brett Andersen
Staff Writer In 1975, Congress passed the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which opened the doors of public education to millions of disabled children.
In 2002, a commonly held belief and political mantra is that the federal government contributed to school funding shortfalls by failing to live up to the financial promises associated with the IDEA.
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.
Schoepf said the percentage of reimbursement will vary slightly from district to district and District 197 is receiving approximately 14 percent.
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.

Focus Resources on What Works Georgia Governor Zell Miller, 1996-1997 ECS chairman, called on policymakers to do a better job of focusing resources on what we know works and taking it away from things that don't help to improve student achievement. Miller and ECS released the final report from his initiative as ECS chairman Investing in Student Achievement . The report looks at three areas that have the potential to affect children: early childhood education, the connections between K-12 and postsecondary education, and teacher education.

Physical Accessibility in Madrid
General information
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. Access Abroad thanks APUNE (Asociacion de programas universitarios norteamericanos en Espana) and Professor Patricia Hart of Purdue University (resident director of the Indiana-Purdue-Wisconsin program in Madrid, 1999-2000) for compiling the following resources on disability in Spain:
