The National Center for Special Education in Charter Schools (NCSECS)  is both pleased and a bit exhausted to announce that in each of the past two weeks it has released a major research paper.   

On November 4th the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools published a paper authored by NCSECS entitled “Getting Lost While Trying to Follow the Money: Special Education Finance in Charter Schools.” Our study of how special education is funded in charter schools is the first state by state analysis of this crucial and poorly understood issue.
