I'm a little confused. The fact that there's a huge burden on the parents means there's no burden on the schools?

Ed. where did I state that? The point is that the schools and the communities are not alone in working to meet the critical needs of students with autism. Parents are not sitting back and making their child's educational and overall welfare the primary responsibility of the school or the community.

There's no way a responsible parent can, because the financial cost of supporting a disabled adult is extreme (and that $3M expense isn't neccessarily a static, fixed expense over time, either). As to the schools, there's also the cumulative financial cost, and low rate of associated academic return, when a child's disability is be treated with inadequate resources, which a good economic model should take into account.
