Description

More than one of every eight children in Long Island's schools is now classified as disabled, joining a fast-growing special-education system that is now made up mostly of children with speech or learning disorders. The system is eating increasing taxpayer dollars but has largely failed to adjust to these students needs. The story deals with a multitude of problems, from testing methods to financial mismanagement.
