Why So Many African-American Children in Special Ed?
Talbert-Johnson, Carolyn
School Business Affairs, v64 n4 p30-35 Apr 1998
Examines salient issues concerning African-American students' overrepresentation in special education and identifies critical teacher, student, and program variables abetting this process. Few teachers are equipped to deal with different cultures, languages, lifestyles, and values, although white, middle-class kids from two-parent families are becoming rare. Schools must adapt programs to fit diverse children's needs. (35 references) (MLH)
