Federal Legislation on Behalf of Handicapped Children: Implications for Regular Educators. Initiating Change Through Inservice Education: A Topical Instructional Modules Series.
McCarthy, Martha; And Others
The purpose of this module is to synthesize technical information on federal mandates on education for the handicapped and to present the information in a format that can be adapted for use with teachers, administrators, school board members, or parents. Activities for use in workshop settings are designed to: (1) increase knowledge and understanding of pertinent federal legislation, federal regulations for implementing the laws, and court decisions interpreting the laws; (2) increase sensitivity to potential problems in implementing the legal mandates and to the mandates' implications for public educational process; and (3) enhance skills in analyzing institutional forces that inhibit or facilitate the attainment of specific provisions of Public Law 94-142 and section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and in designing plans to implement legal mandates. The introductory lecturette discusses litigation and legislation, including right to access, right to accurate classification, and right to appropriate programs. Sessions on Public Law 94-142 and Section 504, action plans, and case situations list goals, processes, and materials. (JD)
