Within each state's section, descriptions of statutory provisions are grouped by subject category: right to an education, population (definition), identification and placement, administrative responsibility, planning, and finance, administrative structure and organization, services, private schools, personnel, and facilities. References to statute numbers are provided. The second part of the digest summarizes federal laws pertaining to the education of handicapped children. Organization is by statute rather than subject category. Fifteen federal laws are covered. (KW)
