Has to be 500 words Answer the questions The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act is a federal law that requires the placement of students with disabilities in the least restrictive environment. This means that these students should be placed in settings in or as close to a general education setting as is feasible for them. What is the least restrictive setting for a child with a disability? Is it feasible to place every child with a disability in a general education setting? Are there realistically adequate resources to do this? Do we have the skill and the will to make it work? Are there some students who should never be considered for general education placement? If the federal government mandates special education for all children, commits itself to funding 40% of the cost, and continues to renege on the full funding, should school districts be forced to fully implement IDEA? Is excluding children with disabilities from full inclusion in general education morally and ethically comparable to excluding children because of race?
