Special education in America : its legal and governmental foundations by Council for Exceptional Children( Book )

6 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The text presents six chapters on the legal and governmental bases of special education. In the Introduction, F. Weintraub and J. Ballard cite the legislative and litigative history of P.L. 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, and briefly address information sources on such policy issues as procedural safeguards, underserved populations, and standards of practice. In chapter 2, "The Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975 (P.L. 94-142): Its History, Origins, and Concepts," J. Zettel and J. Ballard review court cases and state and federal legislation, and list the rights of handicapped children, including the right to an appropriate education and the right to be educated in the least restrictive environment. J. Zettel in "Implementing the Right to a Free Public Education" analyzes five aspects of P.L. 94-142: zero reject, individualized education programs, least restrictive environment, nondiscriminatory testing and evaluation, and due process. In "Section 504: The Larger Umbrella," M. Gerry and J. Benton examine Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 in terms of its litigative background, statutory and regulatory setting, and enforcement. "The Education of Gifted and Talented Children from a Federal Perspective" by J. Zettel describes the cyclical nature of support and interest in education for gifted students. In the final chapter, "Interpreting the Rights of Exceptional Citizens through Judicial Action," B. Smith and J. Barresi summarize siginifcant cases concerning issues that have surfaced since passage of P.L. 94-142, including compensatory services, suspension and expulsion, and bilingual special education. Appendixes include a paper by J. Barresi and B. Ramirez, "The Federal Program Presence Accompanying P.L. 94-142," a list of federal laws for the handicapped from 1827 to 1981, and a list of resources. (Cl)
Public policy and the education of exceptional children by Frederick J Weintraub( Book )

10 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended for persons concerned about public policies for exceptional children and those engaged in creating public policy, the book provides guidelines and examples of appropriate policies for exceptional children. Considered in Section 1 are the varying rights that advocacy groups have won for exceptional children in the legislatures, courts, and administrative agencies including the right to education, due process, least restrictive alternative, nondiscriminatory testing, and confidentiality. Current developments in public policy at the federal, state, and local levels are examined in Section 2 with significant federal laws provided or digested. Trends in state law are reviewed, a model state law is provided, and the issue of financing special education is analyzed. Discussed in Section 3 are the varying avenues of change: statutory law, administrative policy, attorneys' general opinions, and litigation. Section 4 provides information on advocate needs to effect change including techniques of political action, the problem of priority setting, and the impact of time and circumstances on policy decisions. Professional rights and responsibilities are discussed in the final section including such questions as whether a professional is solely an employee of a system or whether he is also an advocate for children, and the positive and negative impact of collective bargaining on exceptional children.

Local Special Education Variables Necessary for Consideration in Developing State Special Education Fiscal Policies by Frederick J Weintraub( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Developed through a literature review and a meeting with California policy makers, the paper examines the local special education variables necessary in developing state special education fiscal policies. The first chapter reviews the shifting focus in state special education and finance systems and finds three distinct phases of public policy and fiscal responses: Phase 1--the benefactor role (in which public education for handicapped children is seen as a charitable activity by the state); Phase 2--the programmatic role (in which the states became the driving force in mandating change in the provision of services to handicapped students); and Phase 3--the facilitator role (in which the state facilitates the local school district's provision of educational programing). Examined in the second chapter are the following eight policy factors and their associated local policy variables (in parentheses): population characteristics (population size, density, increasing or decreasing enrollment, eligibility criteria, interagency shifts, and the magnet effect); individual educational needs (procedural protections, intensity of services, duration of services, multiple agency criteria); service delivery systems (program services, service providers); governance structures (type of governance units, responsibility vs. Authority, and special education and the local school budget); system costs (geographic location of the education agency, price level variations, contract negotiations); resources (revenue generating wealth, tas levying authority, availability of community resources, private services, personnel resources); timing and predictability (dollar flow, fiscal stability, and contingency capability); and accountability (state education agency responsibilities, local education agency responsibilities). The final chapter presents four general principles such as the following: the number of children requiring similar special education and related services will influence the per capita cost of delivering such services; and the range of special education services required by exceptional children in a school district and the manner in which such services are determined and provided will influence the cost of delivering such services.

Gifted Children Making the Year 2000 Theirs by Frederick J Weintraub( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This concluding chapter notes the changes in education for the gifted in the past 25 years and looks to the future. It notes that preceding chapters have demonstrated that the field of gifted and talented education has a rich history of significant accomplishment, has provided a sound body of knowledge to guide education of these students, and has demonstrated that special educational programming produces better learning in these students. Educators are encouraged to utilize the political spirit of the day to promote gifted education, which at the present time requires emphasizing gifted education's role in helping the United States compete in a global economy. Ohioans are congratulated for coming together and developing a long range strategic plan for gifted education. Positive change in gifted education is seen to require people who are bold enough to take the necessary risks. (One reference) (DB)

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In discussing the recent legislative influences on the identification and placement of children in programs for the mentally handicapped, the author presents a brief overview of the development of the concept of special education as indicated by significant court rulings of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Major legal decisions of the past decade are described relating to areas of state definitions of disability and eligibility, validity of placement (with particular emphasis on intelligence testing as a primary criterion), discriminatory placement of minority groups, parent rights, and ability grouping or tracking. The author also summarizes the implications of the cited cases in terms of testing, placement procedures, individual rights, and the trend of special education itself. (Rd)
Planning State Fiscal Policies to Meet Local Needs. Special Education in America: Its Legal and Governmental Foundations Series by Frederick J Weintraub( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part of a series on the legal and governmental foundations governing education of handicapped and gifted children, the document explores the local variables that uniquely affect the cost of educating handicapped children and which thereby should be considered when developing state special education fiscal policies. An initial section outlines three phases (the benefactor role, programmatic role, and facilitator role) in the development of public policy and fiscal responses; and reviews critical factors to be considered in decision making, including the fiscal resources from which education can be supported, the needs of the population, and distribution factors. Practical examples of how local variables within eight factors influence state special education fiscal policies are described. The eight factors addressed are: population characteristics (population size, density, increasing/decreasing enrollment, eligibility criteria, interagency shifts, magnet effect); individual education needs (procedural protection, intensity of services, duration, multiple agency criteria); service delivery systems (program services, service providers, private insurers); governance structures (type of governance units, responsibility vs. Authority, special education and the school budget); system costs (geographic location, price level variations, contract negotiations, resources); resources revenue-generating wealth, tax-levying authority, availability of community resources, private services, personnel resources); timing and predictability (dollar flow, fiscal stability, contingency capability); and accountability (state education agency responsibilities, local education agency responsibilities). The document concludes with a brief outline of basic principles influencing the cost of special education and related services. (Sw)
