The Least Restrictive Environment Mandate and the Courts: Judicial Activism or Judicial Restraint?
Yell, Mitchell L.
Exceptional Children, v61 n6 p578-81 May 1995
This paper examines four court decisions felt by some authors to represent judicial activism concerning least restrictive environment for students with disabilities. The courts' reasoning and decision-making methods are discussed, and the paper concludes that there is no indication that the courts are ready to abandon precedence and begin substituting their judgments for educators' judgments.
