Free Appropriate Public Education and "Endrew F. v. Douglas County School System" (2017): Implications for Personnel Preparation
Yell, Mitchell L.; Bateman, David F.
Teacher Education and Special Education, v42 n1 p6-17 Feb 2019
The purpose of this article is to examine the free appropriate public education (FAPE) requirements of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The authors first briefly examine the definition of FAPE in the IDEA. Second, they delve into the U.S. Supreme Court's decisions in "Board of Education v. Rowley" and "Endrew F. v. Douglas" and how these decisions have affected the definition of FAPE. They next address the procedural, substantive, and implementation errors school district personnel often make when developing students' special education programs. They offer suggestions on how faculty members can prepare their preservice teachers to understand and avoid these errors and develop educationally meaningful and legally correct special education programs that confer a FAPE.
