Government funding for special education has been generous. According to the Special Education Act, Central Government funding for special education must not fall below 3% of the current year's education budget at the state level, and not below 5% of the current year's education budget at the local level. When preparing budgets, a local government shall give priority to the education of disabled students. Ministry of Education's 2008 budget totaled NT$152,689,908,000, of which funding for special education was NT$6,563,882,000, or 4.3%. The ratio of funding for special education to the education budget at the local level, 5.92% in 2008, has been increasing each year.
