Modify the P.L. 94-142 Regs. for I.E.P.'s.
Gerardi, Robert J.; And Others
The authors criticize the regulations of P.L. 94-142, The Education For All Handicapped Children Act, regarding individualized education programs (IEPs). It is suggested that although the underlying concepts of IEPs are sound philosophically and educationally, the IEP in practice is inefficient in terms of time and actually detrimental to appropriate programming. The obstacles to making decisions via the IEP committee are considered, including excessive requirements for parent participation in decision making. A compromise approach is suggested that would encourage substantial parental involvement in the initial IEP and less intensive participation in subsequent IEPs. (CL)
