More than four million students in the United States are enrolled in private, faith-based schools. One in five of these students is estimated to be in need of special education services, some of which could be supported financially through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 2004. However, inclusive education, a term which describes the education of chil- dren with disabilities alongside children without disabilities, is not provided by many faith-based schools, in spite of the fact that inclusive environments can be beneficial to all learners.
