High School Reform: Integration of Special Education. inForum
Muller, Eve; Burdette, Paula
Project Forum
Evidence suggests that students throughout the nation are not being adequately prepared for post-secondary life and that students with disabilities face even greater post-school challenges (Wagner, Newman, Cameto, Garza, & Levine, 2005). In response to such evidence, many states and localities are initiating high school reform activities and, in recognition of the particular challenges faced by students with disabilities, some are including special education in their reforms. For the purposes of this document, high school reform refers to any strategies (e.g., policies and practices) used to ensure successful post-school outcomes for all who complete school. This document describes high school reform in three states and efforts to include special education in the high school reform process at both state and local levels. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
