Disciplining Handicapped Students: An Administrator's Dilemma.
Ellis, Joseph; Geller, Daniel
NASSP Bulletin, v77 n550 p22-38 Feb 1993
Reviews case law related to disciplining handicapped students, highlighting two 1975 landmark cases ("Wood v Strickland" and "Goss v Lopez") involving suspensions and one seminal case ("Stuart v Nappi") involving expulsion. Although specially protected, handicapped students are neither immune from a school's disciplinary process nor entitled to participate in programs when their behavior impairs other students' educational progress.
