Equal Educational Opportunity in Special Education: Legal Mandates and Strategies for Planning, Chapter 766.
The paper presents a history of the legal mandates (both legislative and judicial) for equal educational opportunity for linguistic and cultural minorities and describes the denial of this right in Massachusetts, as evidenced by overrepresentation of minorities in special education. Aspects of testing protocol, prereferral modification, and bilingual/special education are among factors considered. Guidelines are offered to help local school districts evaluate their progress in providing equal educational opportunity. (CL)
