Policymakers seeking to improve special education in the United States face a system that is:
- Vast – nearly one in eight U.S. schoolchildren is currently considered disabled;
- Complex – federal laws and regulations governing special education are among the most complicated and bureaucratic of any in the federal code;
- Expensive – one study estimated that over $77 billion is spent annually to provide education for students with disabilities, and
- Growing – by more than one-third over the past decade.
