This book features vivid case studies that bring to life real children, school personnel, and family members from the bestselling book, Why Are So Many Minority Students in Special Education? Once again addressing the disproportionate placement of minority students in special education programs, this new book includes the voices and perspectives of all stakeholders to show the tremendous complexity of the issues and the dilemmas faced by professionals, family members, and children. Challenging questions and scenarios are offered at the end of each case study to provide thoughtful follow-up activities and topics for further study. This collection of cases can be used-on its own or as a companion to the main volume-in elementary and special education courses and professional development workshops.
