Library of Congress Subject Heading

Special education--Law and legislation; Children with disabilities--Education


Even though there has been an improvement of public policy in education, as of 1973 only 55-66 percent of the seven million children in the United States requ1ring special education we-re being served. Over three million children were still in need of some type of special programming. Because such a great programming need exists, it was the purpose of this paper to discuss how states are meeting the mandates of legislation through various service delivery systems. In particular, it attempted to document the progress of Wisconsin local school districts in implementing 5.115.4, Laws of 1973.
