Raines, James C.
Social Work in Education, v18 n2 p113-27 Apr 1996
Explores two principles of educational policy--appropriate education and least-restrictive environment--within the context of the current debate about integrating students with disabilities into public education. Reviews the origins of exclusion, and traces the foundations of inclusion back to the civil rights movement. Explains three approaches toward integration. Several practical applications are identified. (KW)
