The Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975 Requires Beneficial, Not Equal, Educational Opportunity
MetadataShow full item record
Examines the United States Supreme Court’s decision in Board of Education v. Rowley. The Court held in Rowley that the Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975 does not require that handicapped children be granted equal opportunity to education, but merely the opportunity to benefit from education that suits their specialized needs. The author believes that this decision is inconsistent with congressional goals and that further clarification is required to provide handicapped children with the education Congress intended.
