Warfield, Grace J., Ed.
Presented are reprints of 37 articles on mainstreaming handicapped children (published between 1968 and 1974 in "Exceptional Children"). The collected articles are arranged within four broad categories: the general rationale for mainstreaming, other philosophical considerations, types of mainstreaming models, and teacher training and administrative concerns. Included in the first section of four articles are an article by L. Dunn questioning the efficacy of special education for the mildly retarded and a review of responses to the Dunn article. Expressed in section 2, containing 13 articles, are views on topics such as open education and labeling. Among possible mainstreaming approaches discussed in section 3 (13 articles) are the special education contract and the zero reject training based model. Considered in a final section (6 articles) are strategies for noncategorical teacher education as well as administrative questions in regard to teacher attitudes and certification. (LH)
