    Is $6500/year adequate for the average special needs child? I’m asking this honestly because I have no idea.

    In general, I’m skeptical of voucher programs since they seldom pick up the entire cost of tuition and really end up subsidizing high to high-middle income families. It all depends on the details.Report

      Depends. What the hell are we expecting, anyway?
      Actual improvement?
      Work? (one can start children working at around age 3 or so…).

      I doubt there’s much call for restraints to prevent the special needs kids from punching through walls — until they hit puberty, at least.Report
