For anyone engaged in setting education policy or state law, The Promise of Special Education is an essential, comprehensive resource necessary to inform any decision that touches the $80 billion spent annually in support of students with disabilities.
For school administrators and boards of trustees, reading The Promise of Special Education is a first-step must-read to ensure a full alliance (or partnership) with school staff assigned with the challenge of working under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act—one of the most complicated and litigious of all federal mandates.
