When we talk about budgets, we have to talk about the very low federal funding of IDEA - Individuals With Disabilities Education Act. In the mid 1970s when this Act was created, the Fed promised to fund this up to 40% of the cost of serving students with disabilities. For all these years the Federal funding has averaged about 11%. If the Feds would fully fund IDEA up to the promised 40%, our State School Fund would not be in the red.
