Schools and the Law of the Handicapped. Revised Edition.
Malakoff, Eve H., Ed.
While the Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975 (Public Law 94-142) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 first established the basic framework for determining the rights of handicapped students, both the courts and Congress are continually interpreting and changing the standards. The eight papers included in this publication are presented to update school attorneys on changes in the law since the original edition of "Schools and the Law of the Handicapped" was first published in 1980, and to provide some new perspectives on various aspects of the laws and their regulations. The titles and authors of the papers are: "The Education of Handicapped Children: An Overview" by John W. Bowen; "Due Process Considerations under Section 504 and Public Law 94-142" by Michael J. Julka; "Public Law 94-142: Identification and Evaluation" by Carmela M. Bowns; "Public Law 94-142: What Constitutes a Related Service?" by Sharon Howard; "Tests and the Placement of Handicapped Students" by Thomas M. Griffin; "Educational Placement of the Handicapped: Selected Issues" by Michael I. Levin; "Disciplining the Handicapped Student" by Patricia W. Morrison; and "Liability for Wrongful Identification, Evaluation or Placement--Is There Malpractice?" by Edward W. Remsburg. Footnotes for each paper contain legal citations. (Author/MLF)
