For over forty years now, students with Special Needs have been guaranteed a quality public education & under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). For the last twenty years or so, the percentage of students nationally who fall into this population has hovered around 13 percent according to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).

Typi non habent claritatem insitam; est usus legentis in iis qui facit eorum claritatem. Investigationes demonstraverunt lectores legere me lius quod ii legunt saepius. Claritas est etiam processus dynamicus, qui sequitur mutationem consuetudium lectorum. Mirum est notare quam littera gothica, quam nunc putamus parum claram, anteposuerit litterarum formas humanitatis per seacula quarta decima et quinta decima. Eodem modo typi, qui nunc nobis videntur parum clari, fiant sollemnes in futurum.
