Due Process in Special Education: Legal Perspectives.
Reviewed in the paper is the application of due process to special education, and provided is an overview of state statute safeguards. Federal court cases, congressional actions, and state legislature measures are cited to describe the evolution of due process implications to the handicapped. Trends in state requirements are analyzed, and adherence to a traditional, judicially-created due process model is noted. It is suggested that most procedures do not provide for adequate parent involvement through informal discussion, and that the means for obtaining parent representation by counsel or an advocate is not guaranteed.
