Rueda, Robert
Exceptional Children, v56 n2 p121-28 Oct 1989
A discussion of special education placement of language-minority students with mild disabilities focuses on current eligibility criteria, proposing that problems in assessment, diagnosis, and placement reflect problems with larger issues in special education, especially continuing reliance on the psychometric paradigm. Reform attempts are categorized as system maintenance, improvement, or restructuring. (Author/MSE)
