The Mainstreaming Cases: Tensions and Trends for School Administrators.
Huefner, Dixie Snow
Educational Administration Quarterly, v30 n1 p27-55 Feb 1994
School administrators are caught between the special education requirements of a free appropriate education and the mainstreaming preference embodied in federal law. This article analyzes circuit court cases and explains four overlapping judicial standards that influence mainstreaming decisions. Administrators should avoid blanket-separation and full-inclusion models and make individualized placement decisions honoring the least restrictive environment concept. (Contains 45 references.)
