This chapter focuses on how the federal and state governments of the United States have been providing funding to educate their youth for more than 200 years. Unfortunately, it was not until the 1950s, when parents of students with exceptionalities sued the schools, that monies from the federal government were made available to educate students with special needs. This chapter also discusses creative funding options because even with the federal funds, states have been relegated to come up with monies to cover their special education population because the federal government has not fully funded its portion of the law. The chapter also examines special education expenditures in relationship to a free and appropriate education and concludes with a discussion about the future trends in funding to educate children with special needs.
