The link is to a specialized school in my state for those children who can't be accommodated by the public school. The price tag exceeds that of Harvard per year. In most cases, the public school district must pay the bill. When you are looking at a price tag of $70,000 plus per year vs accommodating the child locally, all attempts will generally be made to accommodate that child.

Ah, I see. Iíve seen schools that will try at all costs t keep a child in the public school to avoid that. Yes, the district has to pay for it.

Iím strongly against keeping a child in public school if their needs can be better served elsewhere. I have only seen one time where a child was sent to a private school program against the parents wishes. The teachers and aides just couldnít handle him. He needed the specialized services of the school.

Iíve seen more times than I can count, where the school fought to keep a child in, when it was clear they werenít being served to that students needs. Iíve shook my head many times.

There are some children that will not be able to ever do anything other than maybe push a broom and thatís perfectly ok. They should stay.
There are other children that it may take 15 years to teach them to not walk into walls or how to hold a fork and guide it to their mouth and that will be a huge accomplishment for them. Those are the kids that need their own special schools. These are the ones I feel badly for and are being kept simply because of money.
