Severity of Need and Educational Excellence: Public School Reform and Students with Disabilities


by Dianne L. Ferguson 1989

In this chapter I try to locate the areas of intersecting interests between the general reform efforts and special education in the public schools by (a) briefly summarizing some of the major themes to be found in the current reform literature, (b) outlining the implications of both the reports and their critiques for public special education, and (c) describing some of the promising developments within the area of educational reform for students with handicaps (especially those with severe handicaps) that have potential implications for ongoing critical reform in other areas of public schooling.
