Special Education: A Service, Not a Place
The NJSBA Special Education Task Force conducted an exhaustive study of trends in special education programming, funding, and effective practices. During its deliberations, the Task Force consulted with more than 25 experts in special education, including representatives of higher education, key personnel in the U.S. and New Jersey Departments of Education, and special education advocates and practitioners. The Task Force surveyed the literature on the delivery and financing of special education services, and explored options that focus on academic achievement.
