Educating Students with Disabilities in the Least Restrictive Environment: A Slippery Slope for Educators.
Daniel, Philip T. K.
Journal of Educational Administration, v35 n5 p397-410 1997
In the United States, national legislation was created to protect disabled students' education rights. Courts have provided tests for integrating such students into school systems. Some are concerned this advocacy has gone too far and that court decisions authorizing "full inclusion" misinterpret the law's intent. This article examines the scope of education for disabled children and provides legal analysis of "least restrictive environment." (68 references) (MLH)
