More than four decades ago, Congress pledged to pay up to 40 percent of the excess cost of educating students with disabilities. Yet today, the federal government covers less than 16 percent of these special education costs. The Defending Special Education
Students and Families Act would finally live up to that nearly 40-year old promise by fully funding the Individuals with Disabilities in Education (IDEA) Act.
