Concerned that certain racial and ethnic groups wereoverrepresented in special education, Congress, in the 2004reauthorization of Individuals with Disabilities EducationAct, required that school districts take certain actions toaddress this problem. Specifically, districts identifiedwith "significant disproportionality" based on race andethnicity must spend 15 percent of their IDEA funds toprovide early intervention services to school age childrenwho need additional academic and behavioral support. Thisexamination by the GAO reviews its findings as well asrecommendations to improve and standardize states'identification of racial and ethnic overrepresentation.
