Charter School Spec. Ed. Programs Seen to Need External Help
Special education is one area in which charter schools could benefit from external assistance, a report concludes.
Based on findings from four case studies, the report, published by the University of Maryland's Project Intersect, found that successful special education programs in charter schools looked for outside support for funding, program development, and teacher training to meet requirements set by the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and by the states. The inability to fulfill all special education requirements within a charter school’s own infrastructure arises from limited staff and fiscal resources, according to the report.
