DH-14 Increase the proportion of children and youth with disabilities who spend at least 80 percent of their time in regular education programs
About the Data
Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
Number of students aged 6 to 21 years with disabilities who are in regular classrooms at least 80 percent of the day
Number of students aged 6 to 21 years with disabilities in all classroom settings
Data come from the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Data System, administered by the Department of Education, Office of Special Education. Data are based on counts of the number of students with disabilities as specified in the numerator and denominator definitions. Data are aggregated by states and territories for a total of 57 entries (50 states plus DC, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Bureau of Indian Affairs). Thus specific population or demographic data are unavailable (i.e. data by gender, race-ethnicity).
