I caught the last maybe 5-10 minutes,and they were saying something about tax dollars paying for special needs kids as well as autistic kids to go to a private school?! I hope I heard that wrong. If I am right,than why do they get such special treatments,where there parents don't need to work to send them to private schools? Why do parents of normal children need to work 2 sometimes 3 jobs to pay tuition to a private school, if they don't? Aren't all kids special enough to get handouts for private school?

"Aren't all kids special enough to get handouts for private school?" in some areas, yes, any child can get a voucher to go to private school. There are also private school scholarships that "typical" students can apply for....
For my child, the county did pay for 3 years at a private special needs school. In order for the school system to get all the equipment and specialists on staff at the regular school to handle special needs students, they would spend a LOT more money then they would just sending them to a school that is already equipped to handle them.
My DD has now graduated back to the public school system.

watch the seven minute video on the challenged child website and you'll have a better idea of what a private school (for special needs) already has to offer versus sending these children to school that would have to BUY all of this for one or two children. It makes sense that these children are going to schools that have what they need.
