A Model Law for the Education of Seven Million Handicapped Children.
Weintraub, Frederick J.; And Others
Presented are model statutory provisions for the education of handicapped children which are intended as a supplement to regular school laws. (The model statutes originally appeared in State Law and Education of Handicapped Children: Issues and Recommendations and have been announced as ED 056 452 and EC 040 597.) A model law for compulsory school attendance is included to cover the problematic tendency to exclude children with special problems from the requirements of regular school attendance. The remaining sections, arranged as a supplementary title of a comprehensive state school law, concern policy, definitions, state and local responsibilities (special education services administration, special education centers, interschool district responsibilities), planning, identification of handicapped children, provision of special educational materials and training, remedies, technical assistance and personnel training, facilities, and finance.
