Book Description: The Declaration of Independence guarantees Americans the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. However, these rights have not been uniformly available to all citizens. Individuals with disabilities, for example, have received unequal treatment and have been victims of both intentional and unintentional discrimination. This book reviews issues in special educational law and describes the legal responsibilities of schools in relation to students with disabilities. Eight tables, a table of cases, and an index are included.
