Legal and Ethical Considerations of School Placement for Exceptional Children.
Silliman, Ben; Alexander, David
A proposed model for the process of placement of exceptional (handicapped and gifted) children is described in terms of historical, ethical, procedural, and legal aspects. It is noted that historically IQ scores served as the main placement criterion. Stressed in the proposed model is the right of all children to an appropriate education and the right of due process for all involved persons. Described are the roles of screening, evaluation, assessment, placement, and followup in the process model. Reviewed are results of court cases (such as Mills v. Board of Education of the District of Columbia) and due process requirements of Public Law 93-380. Outlined are the ethical and legal requirements of the due process procedure in terms of prior notice, the due process hearing, the hearing procedures, and the decision. (DB)
