Description

The Least Restrictive Environment: Its Origins and Interpretations in Special Education examines issues of ethical leadership and clarifies instructional placement decisions that provide a full educational opportunity for students with disabilities.

Reviews

"This well-written book strives to examine what LRE (least restrictive environment) was intended to reflect and why it is still a contested issue in the education of students with special needs…. This readable volume provides a well-organized appendix of court cases directly related to LRE, which includes a concise rationale of the courts' decisions. Recommended for upper-division undergraduate, graduate, and faculty collections."
