Overview

In 1975 Congress mandated that eligible students with disabilities be provided with appropriate special education services. Since then the law, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, or IDEA, has created a web of legal obligations for school administrators to track. This reference examines how federal and state courts have interpreted the statute and outlines the substantive and procedural requirements that the IDEA, its regulations, and litigation place on schools. Topics include rights of access to a free and appropriate public education, procedural due process, placement requirements, delivery of related services, disciplinary issues, and remedies for failure to adhere to the law. Co-author Osborne is a principal in Quincy, MA, and Russo teaches education and law at the U. of Dayton. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
