Exclusionary Discipline and the Forfeiture of Special Education Rights: A Survey.
King, Ashley Thomas
NASSP Bulletin, v80 n584 p49-64 Dec 1996
A survey of exclusionary discipline practices with handicapped students revealed a national pattern of "de facto" differential treatment. In denying a school's unilateral authority to remove dangerous or disruptive students, the Supreme Court's judgment in "Honig v. Doe" (1988) took precedence over all earlier court decisions. A system to establish misbehavior/handicap linkages and student responsibility is badly needed. (43 references) (MLH)
