The New Push for Excellence: Widening the Schism between Regular and Special Education.
Shepard, Lorrie A.
Exceptional Children, v53 n4 p327-29 Jan 1987
The article cites high costs associated with assessment and staffing of children classified as learning disabled. It is suggested that overreferral of hard-to-teach children perpetuates teaching deficiencies. Professional entrenchment is discussed, and placing a cap on the percentage of mild handicaps funded by state and federal governments is recommended. (Author/JW)
