EDU 608 - Legal and Ethical Foundations of Special Education


Prerequisites: None
In this course, students will uncover the most salient social, historical and legal foundations of special education and examine current issues confronting the field, such as full inclusion, disability rights, and professional ethics. Our initial concern will focus on the civil liberties of students with disabilities, and the legal obligations of their schools and teachers. Central to our discussions will be case studies that highlight many of the ethical dilemmas teachers invariably face, as they try to balance the social and academic needs of children with federal law, state policy, and local school practice.
