Special Education and Law: Implications for the Schools.
Turnbull, H. Rutherford, III
Presented is an outline of the implications of federal and state legislation regarding handicapped children's right to education. Twelve characteristics (such as calling for early childhood education for the handicapped) are listed; and some implications for the public school system are given which include a developing conflict between the right of the mentally handicapped child to an appropriate placement and the duty of the schools to undo and prevent dual school systems based on race, a continuing debate over the financing of special education, and the public schools having to seek help from private sector groups to educate all handicapped children.
