Tuition at a new regional special-education public school in New Jersey -- serving students ages 3 to 21 who have autism or other disabilities -- is lower than the statewide average for private special-education tuition, according to state data. For special education, "it is much more cost-effective to provide [education] on a regionalized basis like this," said a spokesman for the New Jersey School Boards Association. The Center for Lifelong Learning has also been recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency as being one of the nation's 20 "greenest" schools for its eco-friendly design.
