Specialist in Education (Ed.S.)
Educational Administration and Supervision
The national special education mandate, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, also known as Public Law 94-142, was enacted by Congress in 1975. Since that time many politicians, education agencies, and taxpayers, as well as some educators, have become alarmed at what has been perceived as the overexpansion of special education services and their skyrocketing costs. Fiscal problems in education account in part for the growing concerns about the expansion of special education. Limited state and federal resources are available for funding special education. Taxpayer revolts, particularly regarding local property taxes, limit the taxation levies available to finance education.
