The report presents an analysis of nearly 900 responses to surveys regarding the success and failure of P.L. 94-142, the Education For All Handicapped Children Act. Part 1 traces the legislative, regulatory, and litigation history of P.L. 94-142 and reviews the effects of the law on research, training, and instruction. Part 2 includes six chapters on future trends in special education. Subjects are: (1) money--the special education problem that won't go away; (2) the next 10 years in special education litigation; (3) misidentification of students; (4) problems of paperwork; (5) extensions of services to older and younger children; and (6) possible implications of medical and educational advances with high risk children. Part 3 presents views of administrators, advocates, and state officials regarding the effectiveness of the law. Appended materials include the text of the law and regulations. (CL)
