The Regular Education Initiative as Reagan-Bush Education Policy: A Trickle-Down Theory of Education of the Hard-to-Teach.
Kauffman, James M.
Journal of Special Education, v23 n3 p256-78 Fall 1989
The Regular Education Initiative is presented as a flawed policy initiative that focuses on highly emotional issues (integration, nonlabeling, efficiency, and excellence), thereby distracting attention from deeper analysis; lacks the support of critical constituencies; rests on illogical premises; and reflects a cavalier attitude toward experimentation and research.
