Discussion and recommendations concern the following areas in education for the emotionally disturbed: general educational policy, incidence, general and specific educational objectives, identification, administrative and educational provisions, training of specialized school personnel, possible ways of providing for children in rural and suburban areas, financing special services, and the school's responsibility in preventing emotional disturbance. The background, limits, and methods of the study are described; data on programs outside British Columbia and a review of the literature are provided. (JD)
