Special Education for a New Century pays particularly close attention to how inclusive education practices can best be promoted in the era of standards-based accountability.

An updated version of the best-selling Special Education at the Century's End, this new volume combines cutting-edge research and theory about students with disabilities with classic pieces that have influenced the special education field since the passage of the federal Education for All Handicapped Children Act in 1975. This new edition rediscovers those seminal articles and--through a new wave of equally groundbreaking articles--brings the issue up to the present day.

This book looks at special education among English-language learners and in early childhood classrooms, and offers new strategies for addressing the overrepresentation of African American and Latino students in special education. The volume also includes trenchant contributions by Alfredo J. Artiles, Thomas Hehir, and Christopher Kliewer, et al. that challenge existing assumptions about disabilities, urging teachers and administrators to cast away tired notions that denigrate students with disabilities and stand in the way of equal education for all.

Just as Special Education at the Century's End profoundly influenced disability policy and practice when it was published over a decade ago, Special Education for a New Century sets the agenda for scholarship and policies concerning students with disabilities and inclusive education today. It offers rich resources for policymakers and practitioners alike as they face the challenge of guaranteeing inclusive education for all students in today's schools.

From the Back Cover:

An updated version of the best-selling Special Education at the Century's End, this new volume combines cutting-edge research and theory about students with disabilities with classic pieces that have influenced the special education field since the passage of the federal Education for All Handicapped Children Act in 1975. The first edition—featuring such authors as Thomas M. Skrtic, Alan Gartner, and Dorothy Kerzner Lipsky—was instrumental in catalyzing change in special education and in promoting growth within the field. This new edition rediscovers those seminal articles and-y—through a new wave of equally groundbreaking articles—brings the issue up to the present day.

Special Education for a New Century pays particularly close attention to how inclusive education practices can best be promoted in the era of standards-based accountability. In addition, it looks at special education among English-language learners and in early childhood classrooms, and offers new strategies for addressing the overrepresentation of African American and Latino students in special education. The volume also includes trenchant contributions by Alfredo J. Artiles, Thomas Hehir, and Christopher Kliewer, et al. that challenge existing assumptions about disabilities, urging teachers and administrators to cast away tired notions that denigrate students with disabilities and stand in the way of equal education for all.
