Trends in Special Education in Charter and Traditional Public Schools by U.S. State

This interactive visual database is aimed at increasing understanding of the special education landscape and related trends across every state in the nation. Broadly, the database includes data on enrollment, suspension, local educational agency (LEA) status, authorizer, and funding. This database builds on information published in two of the Center’s reports, “Key Trends in Special Education in Charter Schools in 2015-2016: A Bi-Annual Analysis of the Civil Rights Data Collection” and “Getting Lost While Trying to Follow the Money: Special Education Finance in Charter Schools.”

Sources, Methodology, and Definitions

Note: The variables in this database will be replaced with 2017-2018 CRDC data in spring 2021.
