The Rowley Decision: How the Supreme Court Views the Education of Handicapped Children.
McGarry, Barbara D.
The author looks at the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Rowley case which addresses the implementation of the "Education for All Handicapped Children Act" (P.L. 94-142), particularly the issue of how much special assistance a public school district must make available to a handicapped student. The facts of the case are briefly reviewed from the entrance of the deaf first grader into the public school system to the Supreme Court hearing. The specific wording of the Court's decision is excerpted and discussed. The interpretation of limited congressional intent in P.L. 94-142 and other laws for the education of handicapped children is seen to stem from the status of the national economy. (SW)
