Legal and Political Issues in Special Education

The field of special education is governed by laws (Chapter 766, PL 94-142, PL 101-476, and PL 99-457) and is thus subject to the political process. This course addresses the critical legal aspects of special education, with an in-depth review of legislation, regulations, and current practice issues. The major goal of the course is to clarify for special education teachers their obligations under the law, and to develop strategies for implementing the law with full compliance.
