Change in Education: Three Policy Papers on the Implementation of the "Education for All Handicapped Children Act", PL 94-142.
Educational Testing Service, Washington, DC.
Intended to aid the implementation of The Education for All Handicapped Children Act (PL 94-142), three papers on critical issues are presented. The need for a comprehensive program of identification of handicapped children is addressed in such terms as definitions of handicapped, responsibilities for identifying the children, agreement on type of federal regulations, and identification procedures. A second paper focuses on content, implementation and monitoring of individualized educational plans. The final paper analyzes the law's major funding provisions and reviews the policy issues of inadequate resources, excess costs, erosion of services, state discretion, local education agencies' eligibility, and the interaction of federal and state programs.
