Hypothetical teacher candidates were created, some of whom were depicted as having an acknowledged disability, others having no acknowledged disability and all varied with respect to chronological age. A national random sample of public school principals evaluated the teacher candidates as if screening for a vacant position within their school buildings. School districts were found to be in compliance with the intent of several legislative acts. (Contains 17 references.) (MLF)
