Administrative Challenge or Ethical Dilemma? Responding Justly when a Student with a Disability Engages in a Violent or Disruptive Act
Faircloth, Susan C.; Ritter, Suzanne T.; Wilson, Felicia R.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v10 n3-4 p21-31 2007
This case study involves an 8-year-old American Indian student with a disability, who was videotaped assaulting another student as they exited the school bus. Although acts of school violence are common on campuses across the nation, this incident is particularly complex, given the disability status of the student committing this act. This case provides an opportunity for both practicing and aspiring school leaders to explore a number of administrative and ethical dilemmas related to the discipline of students with disabilities and other special educational needs, utilizing a framework grounded in principles of social justice and equity.
