Well, since it looks like the governments, parents, and students were 
all in on it, they wanted their piece of the pie too.

As a parent with kids at the low end of the school system, I shudder. 
At least we have (or are in the process of getting, for the youngest) 
that nice little cluestick of an "autism spectrum" diagnosis, which 
means my kids bring additional Federal funds to whatever school district 
they are in, which means school district officials actually listen to us 
when we express displeasure.  And for both kids, the ASD is mild enough 
that with early intervention, we're getting a good handle on it.  At 
least the money for in-classroom aides and such are helping benefit some 
of the other kids who don't have that luxury.
