Least Restrictive Environment, Inclusion, and Students with Disabilities: A Legal Analysis.
Yell, Mitchell L.
Journal of Special Education, v28 n4 p389-404 Win 1995
This review of legislation, including the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and court cases concludes that IDEA does not compel placement of students with disabilities in regular classrooms but, rather, fully supports the continuum of placements. Principles extrapolated from these cases offer guidance to special educators making decisions regarding the least restrictive environment. (Author/DB)
