Gershman, Janis; Wright, E.N.
The 1975 school status of 696 students enrolled in Toronto special education (nonmedical related) programs in 1970 was examined to determine whether special education was effective in returning children to regular classes. Data indicated that of the 49 percent of the students remaining in the Toronto school system, 32 percent had returned to regular classes and 68 percent were still in special programs. Rates of return to regular classes varied according to specific program type, child's age, and the socioeconomic status of his family. (Author/CL)
