Discipline in special education.


Discipline in special education.

Osborne, Allan G. and Charles J. Russo.

Sage Publications


167 pages




Drawing on 34 years' experience as a special education teacher and school administrator, Osborne joins forces with education law specialist Russo (U. of Dayton, Ohio) to provide a practical guide on properly disciplining students with disabilities without violating their rights as established under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). While not intended as a replacement for the advice and legal counsel of school board attorneys, the text is designed to give K-12 education professionals a clearer understanding of the IDEA so they can make legally correct disciplinary decisions. Coverage includes an overview of the American legal system, legal issues involving student discipline in general, major laws affecting special education, removal of students from general education settings, transfers to more restrictive settings, other disciplinary considerations, and recommendations for practice.
