Special Education Law contains relevant statutory excerpts and carefully edited reports of the leading special education cases, together with extensive explanatory materials and provocative questions for class discussion. The book also features practical exercises for home assignments or in-class projects. Two of the co-authors teach in law schools and have deep experience in special education law as well as allied subjects such as constitutional law, administrative law, civil procedure, federal courts, and general school law. Their background enables them to discuss the special education topics thoroughly and to draw connections to other parts of the law school curriculum. The third co-author, who is also a lawyer, teaches educational administration as well as special education law; that background enables him to add lessons on the real-world impact of the law on the daily work of the schools.
The Fourth Edition includes new cases on eligibility, damages, and other topics, as well as coverage of the new Infant and Toddler Program regulations.
A separate publication, Special Education Law: Statutes and Regulations, contains relevant statutes and regulations.
