Charter Schools and Students with Disabilities: How Far Have We Come?
Estes, Mary Bailey
Remedial and Special Education, v30 n4 p216-224 2009
Fifteen years after the first charter school legislation was passed, the number of charter schools opening in the United States each year continues to grow. In 2000, research was conducted to examine the extent and quality of service to students with disabilities in Texas's charter schools. Descriptive statistics and structured interviews were used to identify areas of strength and weakness in special education service provision. This article describes a replication of that study, reviews the initial findings, and presents data that shed light on changes that have occurred in the interim. (Contains 1 table.)
