This report is intended to provide useful information to members of California's State Board of Education, who have varying levels of knowledge about special education. The first chapter reviews the evaluation of special education laws and describes court cases affecting special education. Chapter 2 examines two basic issues: the proper role of public schools in the treatment of handicapped children and who should be served in special education. Governance structure is the focus of chapter 3, which considers the role of board members in special education matters. A case study of governance conflict and its resolution in a rural region of 22 districts is the topic of chapter 4. Among appended material are a summary of service delivery systems and a list of sample policies on organizational and placement issues. (CL)
