Education Quality Indicator Study
Quality and Its Effect on the Placement of Preschool Education Children in
Prepared by MAGI Educational Services, Inc.
Eight years ago, New York State's preschool special education program faced spiraling yearly enrollments at rates double the national average. The enrollment increases, moreover, were accompanied by ballooning costs, which exceeded one-half billion annually. Added to that, New York served a larger percentage of preschool special education children in separate settings than any other state in the nation. Despite the belief that intervening early would avoid the need for future special education, more than 90 percent of the program's preschoolers went directly into the school-age special education system.
