Purpose of special education
Purpose of Special Education

Students with disabilities receive:

“specially designed instruction…to ensure access of the child to the general curriculum, so that the child can meet the educational standards…that apply to all children.” (34 CFR §300.39(b)(3)(i)(ii))


“Children with disabilities have the right to a program designed to help them meet the same high standards expected for all children. The written individualized education program (IEP) should spell out how the child’s special needs will be addressed so that they do not pose a barrier to reaching those standards.”

School reform and enforceable rights to quality education – Paul Weckstein, chapter in Heubert, ed., 1999, Law and School Reform.


Access a civil rights issue
Access – A Civil Rights Issue designed to help them meet the same high standards expected for all children. The written individualized education program (IEP) should spell out how the child’s special needs will be addressed so that they do not pose a barrier to reaching those standards.”

“Excluding students with disabilities from an opportunity to derive educational benefit from education reform becomes a civil rights issue.”

(Hitchcock, Meyer, Rose, Jackson, 2002)


Participation Criteria designed to help them meet the same high standards expected for all children. The written individualized education program (IEP) should spell out how the child’s special needs will be addressed so that they do not pose a barrier to reaching those standards.”
