Charter Schools: A New Barrier for Children with Disabilities.
McKinney, Joseph R.
Educational Leadership, v54 n2 p22-25 Oct 1996
Evidence from Arizona and other states demonstrates that children with disabilities lack equal access to charter schools. Charter school operators are avoiding potentially high-cost students and are unprepared to meet their needs. Charter schools need to strike cooperative resource-sharing arrangements with neighboring districts. States must monitor charter schools to ensure compliance with federal legislation. (MLH)
