The Law of Special Education in the United States and England: Civil Rights and Public Duties.
Allen, Tom
Journal of Law and Education, v25 n3 p389-417 Sum 1996
Examines the law of special educational needs in the United States and England, focusing on local authorities' power to determine provision levels. American courts have closely linked education and equality; constitutional law concentrates on the child's legal rights. The English system does not recognize a right to education or equal access to services, but imposes specific duties on local authorities. (153 references) (MLH)
