Public Law 94-142: How to Keep the Ball In Your Court and Out of the Law Court.
Kley, Raymond C.; Glaser, Roberta E.
This presentation was meant to identify for principals some of the issues surrounding the education of the handicapped by the use of questions and answers that include citations of selected federal court cases. Issues discussed include history of the education of the handicapped, problems related to handicapped student identification and testing of the handicapped, explanation of terms related to education of the handicapped and terms used in P.L. 94-142, cost of educating the handicapped, the roles of all those involved in education of the handicapped, communication between those responsible for designing programs for the handicapped (such as teachers or principals) and those responsible for the school budget, possible causes for future court cases, and other areas of concern. The author concludes that education of the handicapped can be accomplished economically if boards of education and professional staff members have a deep commitment to such a program supported by written plans for implementation. Included is a handout describing the superintendent's and the principal's responsibilities in education of the handicapped. (JM)
