In 2018, the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates, Inc. (COPAA), under a cooperative agreement with the National Council on Disability (NCD), researched and wrote the report “The Segregation of Students with Disabilities.” This report is part of a five-report series on the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) that describes the legal and scientific basis for an inclusive versus segregated education, summarizes national patterns for educating students with disabilities in general education classes, examines federal and state guidance, and state compliance with federal mandates, describes effective educational practices for reducing segregation, and provides findings and recommendations for improvement. COPAA asserts that we must look at the entire system in order to truly improve results for children. The panoply of laws that promote equity and prohibit discrimination, and the provisions of the IDEA must be faithfully implemented in concert to ensure that the civil and constitutional rights of children with disabilities. The presenters will discuss specific trends and recommendations with the audience and dialogue about solutions to factors that sustain segregation.
